Minister for Home Affairs Bal Krishna Khand has said that the government will make public the report after carrying out the investigation on the Darchula incident.

In the Darchula incident, Indian Seema Suraksha Bal (SSB) reportedly cut off the rope of tuin (wired river crossing) while Jay Singh Dhami of Darchula was using it to cross the Mahakali River. Dhami has gone missing after falling into the river.

In today's meeting of the National Assembly, Home Minister Khand shared that a probe committee formed under the coordination of Joint-Secretary of the Ministry, Janardhan Gautam, has been dispatched to the incident site to carryout onsite investigation of the case. The probe committee has been asked to submit its report within 10 days.

Saying that the Darchula incident was serious, sad and sensitive, he noted, "Other persons, who were together with Dhami, are being enquired and security personnel from India and Nepal have been carrying out a search for Jay Singh."

The Home Minister opined that the government would take the opinion, information and views expressed regarding the Darchula incident seriously and would make public its opinion once the fact of the incident comes out.

He also shared that suspension bridges are being constructed to replace four such tuins over the Mahakali River. Dhami had used the tuin in order to shorten his travel to Khalanga from Vynas Rural Municipality.

Five police posts of the area have been mobilised to search for Dhami.
