Armed Police Force has started constructing a Border Out Post building at Gaga of Chhangru in Byas, Darchula.

It is said that the building will be suitable for all seasons irrespective of the harsh weather. The stateof-the-art building with 40 rooms is expected to be completed within a year, construction entrepreneur Suresh Chand said. The total cost of the building is estimated at Rs 100 million.
