Dear Ministry of Defense,

I am working on a research project as part of my graduate studies work in the School of Public Policy at Central European University, Budapest, Hungary. As part of the project, I would like to inquire about the number of male and female security officials (dis-aggregated by Nepal Police, Armed Police Force and Nepal Army) annually between 1994-2014.

Yours faithfully,
Shaileshwori Sharma
