Small explosion hits Indian consulate camp in Nepal

Sheetal Sukhija - Tuesday 17th April, 2018

KATHMANDU, Nepal - An explosion hit an Indian consulate camp office in Nepal's Biratnagar, creating a hole on the compound wall.

According to officials, the explosion took place at the temporary office of the Indian consulate in the province capital, which is 380 kilometres from Kathmandu. 

Further, officials clarified that no one was injured in the explosion, since the explosion took place toward the secluded rear area of the main office building.

Officials said that the temporary office was set up by India during the floods in Nepal and north Bihar in 2015. 

Since then, the office has been functional.

According to Senior police officer Arun Kumar, an investigation had been launched into finding out who could be behind the explosion.

Investigators reportedly suspect that members of a local political group, which had called a strike in Biratnagar on Monday, could have a hand in the explosion.

Biratnagar is close to the Indian border across Bihar and is Nepal’s second biggest city after Kathmandu.
