India has said it has no official information about the Nepali man missing in Mahakali after Seema Surakhsya Bal (SSB) cut the tuin (ropeway) he was using to cross the river on July 30.
Spokesperson at the Indian Ministry of External Affairs Arindam Bagchi said so when asked a question about the report submitted by the Nepali probe committee on the incident during the regular press meeting in New Delhi on Thursday.
"I have seen media reports, we have seen such reports. But no such information has come to us. No such detail has officially arrived to me," Bagchi stated. "You have said much that they have some internal reports or there has been some investigation. I have no information about it."
Jaya Singh Dhami, 33, of Darchula has been missing after falling in Mahakali while crossing it on a tuin (ropeway) on July 30. A police complaint has been lodged alleging the Seema Surakhsya Bal (SSB) of India of cutting the rope of the tuin he used to cross Mahakali to travel to the district headquarters via India to come to Kathmandu to fly abroad for employment.
The Home Ministry had formed a probe committee on August 1 to investigate the incident and the committee submitted the report to Home Minister Bal Krishna Khand on Tuesday stating that the incident seems to have occurred in presence of SSB.
The report has also recommended diplomatic initiative to provide appropriate reparation and relief to the family of Jaya Singh Dhami who has been missing after the incident.
