Tibet border areas, Nepal had rushed 19
additional Armed Police Force (APF) personnel to
Mustang district, reported MyRepublica .com
(Nepal) Feb 22. They brought to 46 the number of
APF personnel for the border security post set up
at Lomanthang, Chandika APF Battalion commander Mr Madan Singh Khadka had said.

The report said Lomanthang, Chhoser, Charang,
Surkhang, Ghami and Chhuncha areas in Mustang
district shared border with Tibet, suggesting
that posts may be set up in all these areas.

movements and to control alleged anti-China
activities by Tibetans in the country.
