The decision came following recommendations from the Central Security Council for deploying NA, as recommended to it by a meeting of the regional security coordination committee’s meeting held in Surkhet last week.
With the decision into effect, APF personnel will come out from the project site. Currently, a unit of 70 APF personnel under the command of a DSP has been providing security to the project.
Most probably, the decision will be brought into effect within a month, a security official who attended the regional level meeting said. “Maybe, Nepal Army’s deployment will be within a month,” he said.
“In our meeting, we’ve made the recommendation to the central security council about Nepal Army’s deployment,” Far-Western Regional Administrator Mukundaraj Prasad Ghimire said. “The decision will be materialized soon.”
The assignment for developing required infrastructure for the camp has been given to the developers of the project while Nepal Army itself will make other necessary arrangements, he said.
With the decision, APF and Nepal Police will be undertaking other security arrangements related to the project other than project site, a security official said.
