Indian killed as Nepal police fire at protesters near border

KATHMANDU: A 19-year-old Indian was killed as Nepal police opened fire on people demonstrating against the new Constitution near the India-Nepal border, hours after security forces baton-charged Madhesi protesters and evicted them from a key bridge in the area in a pre-dawn swoop.

Ashish Ram of Raxaul in Bihar was killed as police opened fire on protesters at Shankaracharya Gate near Birgunj Customs, according to home ministry sources.

Ram received bullet shot in his head and was declared dead at the hospital.

The deceased was identified after a phone call was made to his maternal uncle from his mobile, police said.

Clashes erupted in different parts of Birgunj on Monday after Nepalese police baton-charged Madhesi protesters, burned down their tents and evicted them from the Miteri bridge at the India-Nepal border, opening the main Birgunj-Raxaul border trading point for the first time in 40 days.

Violence in the area forced authorities to clamp an indefinite curfew.

Nearly 200 empty trucks stranded in the Nepalese side of the border were allowed to enter into the Indian territory during the brief period when the police took control of the area.

Several protesters were injured after police fired rubber bullets to maintain law and order.


Eight personnel of Nepal Police and Armed Police Force also sustained injuries after agitators hurled stones at them.

Five protesters were arrested when the police intervened at around 4.30am to open the Birgunj-Raxaul trading point through which about 70 per cent of bilateral trade is done, home ministry spokesperson Laxmi Prasad Dhakal said.

Security personnel baton-charged about a dozen protesters who were sleeping in the tents set up on the bridge between Nepal-India border. The tents and beddings used by the agitators were burned.

Madhesis - who claim to represent the interests of the Indian-origin inhabitants of Nepal's Terai region (plains) - have been protesting close to the main trading point near Raxaul. Their agitation has led to a halt in supply of essential goods, causing acute shortage of fuel in Nepal.

Some three dozen Indian truck drivers, who were stranded on the Nepalese side of the border due to the blockade, had staged sit-in at the Indian Consulate office in Birgunj for the past few days seeking their return to India.

There is 15-km long queue of vehicles waiting for clearance from Indian authorities for entering into Nepal, Dhakal said.

These vehicles were carrying essential fuels, LPG, medicines and food items for supply to the landlocked country.

Indian officials have been saying that the supplies of essentials were stopped due to the blockade by the Madhesis.

Talks between Nepal government and Madhesi groups agitating over the country's new constitution on Sunday ended inconclusively, but deputy Prime Minister Kamal Thapa said the dialogue was moving in a positive direction.

The major demands of the Madhesi Front are to redraw the demarcation of the federal provinces and inclusion of more rights and representation to the Indian-origin Madhesi people.

Other demands include martyrdom status to those killed during recent protests, free treatment to the injured, compensation to victims' families and withdrawal of security forces from Terai districts among others.

The alliance has been staging protests in various parts of southern Nepal against the seven-province model of the newly-promulgated Constitution for more then two months.

The southern plains of landlocked Nepal have been simmering with tension since the Constitution was formally adopted on September 20.

Over 40 people have died in the violent agitation that has also overwhelmed India-Nepal ties as transit of goods and fuel to the Himalayan nation from India via the major border trading points has been badly affected.

Meanwhile, 12 trucks carrying petrol from China on Monday entered Nepal through Rasuwagadhi trading point. These tankers were bringing 144,000 litres of petrol and diesel to Nepal for the first time following an agreement inked between Nepal Oil Corporation and Petro China in Beijing few days ago.

China has agreed to supply petroleum products to Nepal to fulfil one third of its demands, Nepalese ambassador to China Mahesh Maskey told a television channel today.

Under the agreement, China will supply petrol, diesel, LP Gas and air gasoline, he said.

China has announced to provide 1,000 metric tonnes of oil equivalent to 1.2 million litres to Nepal on grant basis as relief in the festival season.

Officials from Nepal Oil Corporation and Petro China will hold discussion on fixing prices for the petroleum products to be supplied to Nepal by China for long term consumption, he said.

Re: Indian killed as Nepal police fire at protesters near border

It is surprising that suddenly Nepal is drifting away from India,they even recently signed a power agreement with China inspite of having a deal with India.

New generation of Nepal is anti Indian and pro-china, So are many politician. China also buy politicians to do lobbying. Only advantage we had over china is that we have open borders with Nepal, whereas there are massive mountains on Nepal-China border, however China is building pathways to Nepal, When they are enough to maintain Nepal's supply chain, They will say us to Fuck off. Nepalese do servant work in India, They can do this in China also. Presently Nepal wanna have 'Laddu' is both hands, take help from India pretending it will make them stay away from China, and vise versa with China. But in the end China's influence is growing in political section as well as among youth of Nepal. If we ask common man of Nepal 60+ yrs of age, they are mostly Pro India But youth of Nepal are spoiled by Chinese culture.

Raw had good hold in Kathmandu, what happened behind the scenes in power struggle, can't be predicted. But current stand of Nepal regime seems quite unlike what they use to do in situation like these in past (i.e. Economic blockage of 1989) Probably time has changed.

A beggar would go to richer man for begging, As of now China is both bigger economic as well are military power, they are ready to give them lot of money. Which directly or indirectly would end up in politician/officers pocket. New Delhi must also be working on strategy to counter this. Attitude of Nepal is like that of a beggar who has become a 'chooser', So it can force either country to give money, so it won't go to rival country. In long run, it would be very dangerous for Nepal But today it's filling pockets of politicians. If tomorrow Nepal falls, they feel they can move to some other country with that corruption money. So who cares ?
