Nepal factory owners demand larger security force

NEPALGUNJ, JUL 24 – Entrepreneurs in Western Nepal have asked the government to beef up the Industrial Security Force (ISF) as the number of factories have swelled tremendously and security requirements have increased. The industrialists said that the security force was too small to handle the expanded needs. There are 345 armed police personnel under the ISF to protect factories scattered over 26 districts from Butwal to Kanchanpur.
A flurry of new factories have opened in the region since the end of the armed conflict eight years ago. Even though the fighting has stopped, industrialists still face threats from trade unions and assorted Tarai-based armed outfits who have been engaged in extortion.
