After this, the tension between the two countries deepened. The trade union had closed the Indo-Nepal bridge in protest against the incidents of stone pelting by Nepal in Dharchula, Pithoragarh.

We have protested against the brutal manner in which our local people have been beaten up by the Nepalese side. The administration has asked for 3 days' time, if action is not taken then the bridge will be closed again.
