What is the Nepali Police doing to maintain law and order?
A committee has been formed in both the east and the Tarai that is intervening to improve security. Their work has been made easy as the areas are constantly in touch regarding the law and order situation.

What are some of the challenges you face?
The public is not afraid of breaking the law. They are encouraged and supported by the political parties so they don't get caught. We are often pressurised to release the perpetrators. We can only work well if political parties stop supporting impunity. We also do not have enough manpower and necessary resources, which has set
us back.

What problems have the party-affiliated youth wings aroused?
The main problem comes from them. We do not have the resources or favourable environment to take action against those who break the law. Any offences charged are immediately overruled. Parties regularly interfere in police activities and the locals fend for the offenders because they are threatened. The police follows the law of the country, yet we are always blamed. We are helpless because we cannot even use the rights given by the Nepali law.
