Kathmandu: Nepal-India border will remain closed for 72 hours during local election.

A meeting of security officials from Chitwan, East Nawalparasi, West Nawalparasi and West Champaran, which falls under the Indian state of Bihar, has decided to close the border for 72 hours.

The border will be closed to conduct the local elections in a fair, fearless and peaceful manner.

It has been decided to increase the number of patrols in the border area to control the illegal weapons entering the border area during the election and disrupting the election.

Similarly, serious discussions were also held on controlling drugs, human trafficking and smuggling from the border area.
