Kathmandu, Oct 1 Security has been beefed up along the Nepal-India border to check the movement of anti-social elements ahead of the Dashain, Tihar and Chhath festivals, a senior police official said Monday.

The India-Nepal border is open and citizens of both the countries move freely across it without passports or visa.

"Police teams have been mobilised in the border areas in Birgunj, adjoining Raxaul (Bihar), in Parsa, including Inarwa Sirsiya, Aalau, Janaki Tole and Bhiswal," Superintendent of Police, Birgunj, Rewati Dhakal said.

Also, a tight vigil is being kept in the areas where there is a large movement of people like banks, bus stops and religious sites, the official said, adding it aims to prevent any criminal from carrying out any illegal

activities during festival period. SBP SMJ SMJ
