KATHMANDU, Nepal - Nepal Police have requested that police officers be stationed at embassies in six countries, including Nepal's Permanent Mission to the United Nations in New York.

SSP Basanta Bahadur Kunwar, a spokesperson for the Nepal Police, shared the information with the press on Monday.

The officers will be deputed to Malaysia, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, China, the United Arab Emirates, and Bangladesh in the first phase. To date, Nepal has dispatched police personnel to India only.

The police unit will prevent and prosecute numerous crimes and nefarious acts perpetrated by Nepalis living overseas. "It will also facilitate various inter-country policing, including exchanging information about crimes and other legal issues that are not possible to deal with through INTER-POL," Kunwar said.

Nepalese authorities also expect that sending police units to these countries will aid in the identification of offenders and convicts hiding there.

"This will deter perpetrators from committing a crime within the country and fleeing to foreign countries," said Superintendent of Police.

Establishing police units abroad is also expected to help combat human trafficking and other human rights violations.
