    The decision to seal the border was taken during a recent meeting of officials from both the countries, Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) commandant Shiv Dayal said on Tuesday.

    "The India-Nepal border will be sealed completely three days before polling and movement of people would also be banned," he said.

    Security has been increased in UP's Lakhimpur Kheri, Siddharth Nagar, Pilibhit, Kushinagar, Bahraich, Shravasti, and Balrampur districts.

    "Security personnel are maintaining vigil round-the- clock," the commandant informed.

    Paramilitary force, civil police and intelligence organisations are also keeping a close vigil on all activities in the border areas, he added.
