New Delhi, June 23
China has occupied a village of Nepal and allegedly removed the boundary pillars to legitimise its annexation, top government sources said on Tuesday.
It has also been learnt that China has gradually made inroads into several Nepalese territories with an ulterior aim to seize complete control.

The latest in the line is Rui village in Gorkha district, which is now in total control of China. “In a massive departure from its diplomatic stand of non-interference, the Chinese have completely occupied Rui village and the residents comprising around 72 houses are fighting for their original identity. This also shows how Nepal’s current regime has surrendered to China and is now making anti-India statements and resorting to anti-India activities,” top sources said.
Apart from Rui village, China has also occupied strategic lands at 11 places across Nepal. Around 36 hectares in four districts of Nepal, which border China, have been illegally occupied by China, but so far the Nepalese government is tight-lipped about it. The occupation of Rui village has been done systematically by China in the last two years. —IANS
