Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) of India is making every effort to hide the reality of the disappearance of Jay Singh Dhami in the Mahakali River after tuin ( Rope Bridge) was cut down. The SSB has lodged a complaint with the Uttarakhand Police alleging that its own citizens were operating illegal Tuins (Rope Bridge) in Mahakali.
After the incident, even the Indian nationals living in the border area said that Jay Singh Dhami had gone missing due to the SSB. The Indian newspaper Hindustan Dainik has published the news that the SSB has lodged a complaint with the Uttarakhand Police against three Indian nationals from Pangla area for spreading confusion about the Tuin incident.
According to a report published in Monday’s issue, the 11th Brigade of SSB has written to the Pithoragarh District Police Chief (SP) to take action against three Indian drivers. The 11th SSB headquarters is located in Didihat tehsil, 60 km from Dharchula tehsil of Pithoragarh. The letter alleges that the locals misrepresented the incident on social media
It is also written in the news that the SSB has accused the local driver of illegally transporting Nepali citizens from Tuin. All the three accused have been questioned and demanded action. It is understood that SSB has lodged a complaint against three local youths of Gasku Jayakot village in Pangla area of India. The name of the local who lodged the complaint with SSB has not been disclosed.
The SSB has accused the three of extorting money and smuggling Nepali citizens through Tuin before the incident. A report published in the Hindustan Dainik on Monday states that “their illegal business has come to a halt after the SSB blew the wires.”
However, Indian SSB has admitted in the news of Hindustan Dainik that its security personnel had cut Tuin log on July 30. It is mentioned that the SSB informed the Hindustan Dainik that the illegal business of the Indian citizen was stopped after the SSB cut Tuin’s log at the spot on July 30.
Jay Singh Dhami went missing in Mahakali after Tuin’s was blown up by the SSB. As there is a friendly relationship with the Nepalis in the border area, Indian citizens are expressing their anger and grief on social media about the involvement of SSB in the case of Jay Singh Dhami’s disappearance.
It is mentioned in the news that the SSB has accused the Indian nationals of the border area of spreading propaganda about the incident through social media. The SSB has accused some locals of defaming them. “This is tarnishing the image of SSB and adversely affecting relations between the two countries,” the magazine said in a statement. Locals in the Indian region have also been asked to provide any photo or video evidence of the incident to the SSB.
Meanwhile, SDM of Bharat Dharchula Tehsil Anil Kumar Shukla said that it was illegal to move cross river through Tuin. Stating that no one should use illegal means, he said the allegations against SSB in the Tuin incident were baseless. “Allegations without facts will affect the relations between the two countries,” Hindustan Daily quoted SDM Shukla as saying.
It is said that the Indian administration and SSB are trying to hide the involvement of SSB in the Mahakali incident. It has been reported that two security personnel involved in the incident were sent out of Dharchula tehsil in a vehicle. A local driver said that the two security personnel involved in the incident were sent out of Dharchula on the same day.
In contact with the Armed Police Force, the SSB also said that its security personnel were not involved in the incident. It is said that the SSB informed the Armed Police Force that its security personnel did not reach the spot. The Pithoragarh district administration of India has also informed in writing that SSB was not involved in the incident.
The Indian side has tried to convey the message to the Nepali side that if the issue of SSB’s involvement in the incident is raised, it will have a negative impact on the relations between the two countries. The District Administration Office, Darchula, issued a statement on Saturday urging the people not to publish factless and misleading news. They also expressed concern over the possible disruption in relations between the two countries.
Understanding the psychology of the Indian side and receiving indications from the home ministry, the district administration seems to have issued a statement to cover up the incident and mislead the media reports,” said Shankar Singh Dhami, a journalist working in Darchula. According to journalist Dhami, the release of the district administration office, the release of the home ministry and the statement of the home minister have shown the involvement of SSB in the incident, which could affect the relations between the two countries.
