Banke and Bardiya checkpoints sharing the border with India are to be closed from tonight for the May 13 civic poll in Nepal.

Chief District Officer Surya Bahadur Khatry informed that the Banke and Bardiya-based checkpoints sharing the border with India are to be closed for 72 hours.

He shared that the border checkpoints will remain closed from 12.00 tonight through May 13 mid-night. The measure will be put in place to conduct the local level election in a free, fair, peaceful, and impartial manner.

Earlier too, the administration had decided to close border checkpoints at least 72 hours before the election considering possible security threats due to open borders.

Banke and Bardiya districts share 65 and 82 kilometers of the border area with India.
