Jhapa, May 3

As many as 18 Indian labourers fled from the quarantine facility at Kichakbadh in Jhapa today.

Locals had taken them under control while they were heading towards India through Prithivinagar a month ago.

The workers, who were from West Bengal, were working at a plywood industry in Birtamod. People’s representatives, police and the local administration had kept them in the quarantine facility. Locals said that the quarantine was ill-managed the Indians had to face problems there. They also said that the temporary police post was not informed even after 18 people had left the quarantine.
