Twenty Nepalis have been robbed in India while on their way to Nepal on a vacation, Wednesday.
The young Nepali men, who work in a steel factory in New Delhi, were robbed by a group of unidentified armed men while travelling in a train somewhere in Nanpara of Uttar Pradesh state of India, reports said.
The unidentified group of armed men had suddenly entered the train compartment in which the Nepali workers were travelling and robbed them off their money and other belongings under gun point.
However, the Indian authorities were also of no help when the Nepalis tried to file a case of burglary at the Nanpara Police Station.
Hum Bahadur Thapa, one of the Nepali workers, said that the police instead hurled insults and tried to manhandle them when they tried to register their complaint.
Many Nepalis workers have been robbed in a similar manner in the past while returning home from India.
