The CRPF has decided to adopt Karikat village near Birganj in Nepal to provide people immediate relief and help in its reconstruction, saidInspector General of CRPF, Bihar and Jharkhand, Arun Kumar.

“We got information that nobody has reached Karikat village comprising 150 families so far after the deadly earthquake on April 25 and decided to adopt it,” the CRPF IG said.

He said CPRF personnel would reach out to every family in the village with relief and help in its reconstruction.

Kumar said over 1,000 CRPF (Central Reserver Police Force) personnel have been deployed at Raxual on Indo-Nepal border in East Champaran district of Bihar for relief work of quake-hit people.
