Indian officials have abruptly halted reconstruction of dilapidated border pillars on the bordering areas in Kanchanpur.
Armed Police Force SP Man Bahadur Rajali Magar of Kanchanpur Border Security Force said Indian officials have halted reconstruction of border pillars without informing their Nepali counterparts.
Though construction of some subsidiary border pillars at bordering Parsan VDC is complete, border pillars have not been constructed in other areas.
A meeting of Nepali and Indian security officials lat year had agreed to reconstruct dilapidated border pillars.
The agreement states that India will reconstruct border pillars bearing even numbers and Nepal having odd numbers.
