“As large numbers Nepalese are going India in a group, it is difficult to keep records,” said Police Inspector Anil Shah. People from hill and mountain are crossing the border in a group consisting of 20-30 people in each group.
At a time when there is a lack of employment back home, people from mid-western region have no option other than to go India for employment.
