One Indian civilian was killed and two others were wounded by the Nepal police.

The Nepal Border Police shot and killed an Indian civilian while two others were injured on the Indo-Nepal border in Bihar’s Sitamarhi district.

Nepal shares a 1,850-km open border with India, where several skirmishes in the area have taken place in the past. The incident happened when the Nepal border police fired at one person who died in the hospital, and 2 others were injured. While many people assumed that the incident took place because of recent border tension between Nepal and India, Sitamarhi Superintendent of Police, Anil Kumar, told The Hindu that the incident was not related to the border tension. The victim, who had died, his father reported that his agricultural land fell under Narayanpur in Nepal, where his son was working, and the firing took place after a clash broke out between some people working in their agricultural field.
