Fraud Revealed in Refugee Registration

(Oct.20) Two non-Bhutanese are reported to have registered as refugees from Beldangi-I. Yam Bahadur Rai and his nephew Kirtiman Rai of Beldangi-I, Sector-D/4-hut numbers 268/9 have been deprived of their refugee status when two locals registered themselves through UNHCR as refugees. It is said that Dhan Bahadur Rai, another member of the same family, assisted the duo in the fraudulent act in partnership with an official of the Joint Verification Team (JVT).

Kirtiman, who returned to camp after his long stay outside, discovered after seven months that he and his uncle have been replaced by those non-refugees from the UNHCR registration records.

Rai  petitioned pleading the concerned authority that their case be taken seriously and  those culprits be punished before it is too late.

No investigation of the case has been initiated, instead, the Rai, the victim, has to visit District Administration office at Chandragadi, Jhapa repeatedly.
