China is once again showing its aggressive stance against neighbour Nepal as border pillars went missing in the Daulkha district of the Himalayan nation, media reports said.

In a reported series of events, Nepal was found to have entered 10.5 meters inside of Nepalese borders in village-Vigu of District-Daulkha. The incident was reported to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Nepal by the Border & Information Department of Nepalese Home ministry raising red flags, reports EU Reporter.

On the other hand, Nepal’s Border Pillar No. 60 was found missing from its original post, possibly washed away in the river flowing nearby. The incursion was further countenanced by erection of 2 Chinese flags near the Chinese Border Pillar No. 60, reported the news portal.

The China-Nepal border has historically been a controlled border system, established by a mutual agreement between the two nations in 1960, which subsequently led to the formation of the 1961 border treaty, with the construction of the pillars of demarcation, EU Reporter reported.

Post the 1961 treaty, the boundary line between Nepal and China has witnessed several changes mainly including the erection of 76 permanent border pillars. China is now trying to change the status quo in its favour, the news portal reported.

According to reports, China encroached upon Nepalese territory and constructed 11 buildings in a remote district of Nepal’s border, Humla, last September.

Nepal claimed territory over the Humla region. However, China expectedly denied it.
