Indian paramilitary force Special Services Bureau shot and seriously injured Sitaram Lodh. The Indian security force increased its presence here after the Deuba visit to Delhi, following reports that the Maoists were using the jungle corridor to smuggle arms. The SSB has established 21 posts across from Bardia to strengthen border security. Two other people who were with Lodh are now missing. The Nepali youths were shot at while collecting firewood in the Hasinpurkatti jungle on the Nepal-India border and Lodh was brought to hospital by locals, who found him unconscious in the jungle. ?They shot me without asking any questions,? Lodh said from his hospital bed.
