India orders probe into death of Nepalese man at border


NEW DELHI, March 10 (Xinhua) — Indian authorities on Friday initiated a probe into the death of a Nepalese man during a clash at the border a day earlier.

Kathmandu has said that Govinda Gautam, 20, was killed due to firing opened by the Indian security forces at the border near Anandabazar in Kanchanpur district on Thursday.

“A probe has been launched to ascertain the facts leading to the death of the Nepalese citizen at the border,” a senior official said.

In a statement, the Nepalese Foreign Ministry has condemned the killing and demanded a probe into the incident to bring the guilty to justice.

Sources said Nepalese Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Bimalendra Nidhi has also called up Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and raised the matter.

Clashes broke out between Indian border guards and local residents near Anandabazar over the construction of a culvert on Sano Khola river by the Nepalese authorities. Movement across the border has therefore been suspended.
