Armed Police Inspector Basanta GC informed that an Indian tractor loaded with sand (BR 22 GB 2595) had to be taken under control after the Armed Police Force (APF) team refused to enter the Nepal-India separation pillar. According to the locals, disputes have been arising between Nepal and India over the issue of sand excavation from the Oriya river area from time to time. 

The Indians had fled three years ago after snatching the weapons of the armed police who had gone to stop the Indian intervention. According to the locals, after the Indian side called for tenders, hundreds of tractors come to the Oriya River daily to collect sand and they come to Nepal to dig sand forcibly.
