KATHMANDU: A new Nepal Police troop is leaving for the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Sudan.

Additional Inspector General of Police Ramesh Shekhar Bajracharya on Wednesday saw the team leaving for the Sudan-based United Nations-African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID).

The AIGP wished his best to the team led by Deputy Superintendent of Police Govinda Raj Kafle, which is scheduled to fly for the African nation on Saturday, June 25.

Bajracharya said it was a golden opportunity to work for the international body. He assured that Nepal Police would fulfill the responsibilities given by the UN completely.

He added that Nepal Police would work to retain the integrity and honour of the organisation in the future as well.

The team comprises eight personnel including two DSPs, two Inspectors and four Sub-Inspectors.
