House panel looks into border encroachment

A team of Foreign Relations and Human Rights Committee of the Legislature-Parliament has began field study of encroached lands in Ilam and Panchthar districts on Saturday.
The team, headed by committee chairman Padma Lal Bishwokarma, arrived here after recent media reports that Seema Suraksha Bal, the Indian paramilitary force deployed along Nepal-India border, set up its camp encroaching Nepali territory at Sriantu in Ilam a few weeks ago.
The team started consulting administrative officials, journalists, human rights activists and locals in Ilam on Saturday.
The team members have plans to inspect various bordering areas in Chhabbise of Sriantu VDC, Manebhanjyang, Pulkhola, Sandakpur, Hile and Prabung of the two districts that share the border with India.
