Kathmandu, Jan 29 (UNI) A writ has been filed in the Nepalese Supreme Court ''on Indian encroachment in Susta of Nawalparasi district of the country and unclear provision in the Interim Constitution of Nepal-2063 BS regarding the border'', the local media said.
The writ petition said that India has encroached Nepalese land during the introduction of democracy in the Himalayan nation.
Bijendra Lal Joshi, a resident of Balaju in Kathmandu Metropolis filed the writ, stating that various places of Nepal, including Susta have gradually been ''encroached'' by India since the promulgation of 2047 BS till the time the Interim Constitution was promulgated.
However, no land to such remarkable amount was encroached at the time the 2019 BS Constitution of Nepal was promulgated, the writ said, referring to the regime of the King.
''The land belonging to Nepal as per the clause 4 of article 156 of the Interim Constitution-2063 BS at the time of its promulgation is now outside the country, and the Indian Seema Surakshya Bal barred the parliamentary team to move ahead from that very place, which clearly shows the Indian encroachment,'' the writ states, adding that the article became useless because of this.
