Fighting crime in Nepal district

Police officer credited with coming down hard on crime syndicates in Parsa.



    Police and politicians in Nepal are often accused of working with criminals rather than against them.

    The district of Parsa in Nepal is infamous for crime. The area borders India and is an economic hub, attractive to both legitimate businessmen and criminals.

    But in Parsa district Ramesh Kharel, the police superintendent, is being recognised for coming down hard on some big criminal operations and for persuading locals to go straight.

    "In our country, criminals have been acting with impunity. Here it was the same. But I believe in tackling and managing this state of impunity."
