The activists of Unified Nepal National Front led by Phanindra Nepal were harassed by Nepal Police Force while on their way to the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu to submit a memorandum congratulating the Indian population on the occasion of their 66th Independence Day, August 15, 2012.
The inhumane treatment of Nepal Police Force towards their own brethren was not because the activists wanted to simply congratulate India but because they wanted the Indian Armed forces to quit from illegally occupying Nepali territories in Kalapani.
The Occupation of Nepali land remains intact even as of today.
“On this special occasion, UNNF would like to express its grievance towards the Indian government's policy of continuing to station its army in Nepal's Kalapani, which infringes upon Nepal's territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence,” the memorandum addressing Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, reads.
Obstructed by own police force, according to UNNF president Phanindra Nepal, the memorandum has been forwarded to the Indian Embassy by local post.
Kalapani-the tri-junction where China, Nepal and India meet, India has occupied some 37.5 thousand hectares of Nepali lands. The Indian military has its presence in Kalapani since early 1960s.
“Nepali people are conscious of Indian sinister designs. We will not accept, under any circumstances Indian monopoly at Kalapani. We demand Indian Prime Minister to remove the Indian armies from Kalapani in deference to Nepal's national independence. Unified Nepal Nationalist Front shall not back away from fighting a moral war against Indian sub-colony in case it neglects our demand”, the memorandum to the Indian PM concludes.
