Kathmandu: Nepalese police today forcibly removed the agitating protesters from Miteri Bridge at Indo-Nepal border, opening the Birgunj-Raxaul border point after 40 days.
The protesters initially hurled stones towards police when the latter started removing them early this morning. Some 170 freight trucks entered into India from Nepal after the border was opened, reported. However, no trucks have entered into Nepal from the Indian side so far.
Raxaul customs superintendent Arun Kumar Rajat said that the trucks stranded on Indian side will be sent to Nepal since the border was cleared since this morning.
Over 40 people have died in the violent agitation that has also overwhelmed Indo-Nepal ties as transit of goods and fuel to the Himalayan nation from India via the major border trading points has been badly affected.
