Blast near Indian Embassy camp office in Nepal's Biratnagar

The proposed site for Pancheshwar dam project. Pancheswar a multi-purpose project conceived under 1996 Mahakali treaty between India and Nepal got a fillip when Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Nepal in 2014

The consulate is a temporary office which had been set up during the floods in Nepal and North Bihar. It created a hole in the compound wall of the embassy camp, which is toward the secluded rear area of the main office building, officials said.

Dainik Nepal quoted Superintendent of Police Arun Kumar BC as saying that because of the explosion, the office wall on the west side was slightly damaged.

"The incident took place at night and there was no one inside the office", Paudel said. It, however, continued to function from Biratnagar ever since then. However, The Kathmandu Post reports that the investigating officers suspect cadres of Netra Bikram Chand's Communist Party of Nepal to have caused the blast. The party had called a bandh in Biratnagar on Monday. No one was in the office at the time of the incident, sources said.

Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence, which is often accused by India of spying on its internal security affairs or orchestrating terrorist activities in Indian territory, is suspected to have carried out the blast, sources told Indian news channel CNN-News18.

Biratnagar is the industrial capital of Nepal and is from a distance of 6 kilometres from the border of north Bihar.
