Guwahati: China has reportedly attempted yet another expansion by using increased road construction in Tibet to cut into Nepal's land and may set border outposts in these areas.
It has been reported that China has encroached at least 10 places which comprise of nearly 33 hectares of Nepalese land.
According to reports, China has encroached on 10 places comprising about 33 hectares of Nepal's land by diverting the flow of rivers which act as a natural boundary.
A total of 10 hectares of land has been encroached on in Humla district as Chinese construction works diverted Bagdare Khola river and Karnali river.
Six hectares of Nepalese land have been encroached on in Rasuwa district as the construction work in Tibet brought diversions in Sinjen, Bhurjuk and Jambu Khola.
It is be noted that 11 hectares of Nepal land is already claimed by China for "falling in Tibet" with the diversion of Kharane Khola and Bhote Kosi in Sindhupalchowk district.
China has extensively broadened its road network in Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) due to which some rivers have changed their course and are flowing towards Nepal.
