Security situation gradually improving in Nepal: Report
Kathmandu: The overall security environment in Nepal has improved, even as the situation in southern plains of Terai in the country bordering India continued to remain poor, a report has said.
The Carter Centre, which is monitoring developments in Nepal, in a recently released report said security environment in the country has improved in some parts, though the situation in the southern plains of Terai still remains poor.
However, the situation in the troubled region has `moderately improved` since 2009, the report added.
"It is a positive step that there have been improvements in the security environment in some areas in Nepal," said the Atlanta based NGO in its report.
But more works needed to be done to strengthen the rule of law throughout the country and ensure that all the Nepalese citizens are able to enjoy peace and security in their daily life, the Centre said.
The Centre has recommended awareness raising and community outrich programme along with the Special Security Plan recently introduced by the government and an increase in police presence in the troubled Terai.
The Centre also recommended that the government and the political parties should take necessary steps to stop political interference in police affairs and stop official corruption. Besides, taking action against those involved in crime irrespective of their political affiliation.
There has been some improvement in law and order situation in eastern and central Terai mainly due to the increasing police presence and cross border cooperation, the Centre said.
The report said that in many of hilly region the incidents related to the Maoist violence had decreased in the recent time.
However, it added that the perception of the Maoist threat has remained as legacy from the conflict.
