Amid stale bilateral ties between India and Nepal, authorities along the Nepal border near Uttarakhand have warned of a possible security threat after they witnessed long queues of people lining up near the Banbasa border to get Indian Aadhaar cards so that they can cross over.

Himanshu Kafaltia, the Subdivisional magistrate (SDM) of Tanakpur, a small town near the border, on 9 December claimed that many Nepali citizens vising India through Banbasa were using Indian Aadhaar cards at the border.

“The issue regarding security risk has come to the fore as most Nepalis show Aadhaar cards. I have raised this issue before higher authorities,” the SDM said.

All checkpoints along the India-Nepal border have been closed since 25 March since the first -induced lockdown was announced.

“During checking, we ask people to produce any identification document to prove that they are working in India, like an identification card issued by a contractor or anything else. It has come to the fore that a lot of people are showing Aadhaar cards. Since an Aadhaar card is residential proof, we accept it. Meanwhile, the issue regarding security risk has come up. I have raised this issue before higher authorities,” he said.

The International Suspension Bridge in Dharchula was last operational for nine hours on 18 November. Upon the request of the Nepal government, Dharchula SDM on 9 December issued an order to reopen the India-Nepal International Suspension Bridge to permit the movement of migrants.

Following the new advisory, the bridge at Dharchula was reopened for two days a week – 5 December and 9 December.

Prior to this, the bridge was opened on 22 October for a period of three days so that Nepali citizens who had served in the and other Indian organisations could cross over and collect their pensions.

In 23 November, India’s health team had found Nepali citizens to be Covid-19-positive at Banbasa, a health official said.
