The MP said that the Nepal border runs along Kushinagar district, which can be accessed by walking trails in villages like Hariharpur, Narayanpur, Marichahwa in the area.

Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Kushinagar MP Vijay Dubey has claimed that Pakistan may conspire to spread coronavirus in areas of India that adjoin Nepal borders.

The MP said, "The Nepal border runs along Kushinagar district, which can be accessed by walking trails in villages like Hariharpur, Narayanpur, Marichahwa. The forests of Susta and Parsa, villages in Nepal, are also located nearby. With the help of a Muslim cleric in Parsa, some people here are planning to spread the corona infection. There are intelligence reports and I have alerted district officer."

"The infection can be spread through persons coming into Indian territory through these walking trails," Dubey said.

He said that though Uttar Pradesh police have sealed the international borders, even then he had alerted the DM and the SP. "A Nepal national was caught here on Sunday."

Kushinagar Superintendent of Police Vinod Kumar Mishra said, "The boundaries of the district have been sealed and the even the walking trails are under police vigil."
