Diesel theft through hole in Nepal-India petroleum pipeline

Kathmandu. According to Indian media, diesel was stolen by making a hole in the first Nepal-India interstate petroleum pipeline.

The Indian media Navbharat Times has claimed that thousands of liters of diesel were stolen by bursting the Motihari Amalekhgunj pipeline at Naviganj under Siwan in Bihar, 100 km from the Nepali border.

However, Nepal Oil Corporation spokesperson Binit Mani Upadhyaya said that there was information about an attack on the pipeline but no information was received about diesel theft. Spokesperson Upadhyaya said that diesel is being supplied regularly from the pipeline.

After the attack on the pipeline, the Indian Oil Corporation’s Motihari-based system lost pressure and the Indian side immediately received information about the damage to the pipeline, the corporation claimed.

The corporation has also stated that Nepal will not have to bear the damage caused by the pipeline attack. Though it is learned that the Indian authorities have arrested the person who caused the damage to the pipeline and initiated legal action, the details have not been released, said Upadhyaya.

A 69.2 km long pipeline has been constructed from Motihari in India to Amalekhgunj in Nepal. Currently, diesel comes from the pipeline. The Prime Ministers of Nepal and India jointly inaugurated the Petroleum Pipeline on September 8 last year
