An unidentified group on Monday evening planted an explosive targeting the field office of Indian Embassy in Biratnagar of Morang district.
Chief of the District Police Office, Arun Kumar BC, informs that the explosion was reported outside the office at around 8:30 pm yesterday. The blast destroyed the compound wall of the building in Biratnagar Metropolitan City-13.
Though police are yet to identify the persons involved in the attack, they have suspected Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav’-led CPN’s hand in the incident.
Earlier, the Biplav-led party and few other communist outfits had demanded that the field office be removed.
