Kathmandu: Thirty-seven Bangladeshi nationals have been arrested on Sunday from Thamel, Kathmandu’s tourist hub, for illegally entering Nepal, police said.

They will be deported to Bangladesh soon after the investigation

Somendra Singh Rathaur, Deputy Superintendent of Police at the Sorukhutte police station, told local media that the police have launched a probe against those detained Bangladeshi nationals, Xinhua reported.

Most of the arrested Bangladeshi nationals – who had entered Nepal via India-Nepal Kakarbhitta-Panitanki border point a few months ago – were involved in small-scale business like weaving and crafting clothes in Thamel area, the police said.
