Nepal reels under explosions, arson attacks

Kathmandu (Nepal), Aug 02 (ANI): Nepal’s Nuwakot and Rautahat districts were rocked by two explosions on Wednesday, on the very same day when the banned Communist Party of Nepal called for a strike. The explosions caused damage to government offices in the districts and arson attacks were also reported from other areas in the Himalayan nation. The explosion in Nuwakot took place at Kakani ward office early on Wednesday, resulting in damage of furniture and documents. Likewise, the ward office of Rauthat’s Chandrapur also faced a similar fate on Wednesday morning. Apart from the bomb blasts targeting the government offices on Wednesday, vehicles also were torched in Makwanpur. Suspicious objects were found in four different places in Hetauda. Though no group has claimed responsibility for the incidents, local authorities claim that the banned political party, which is led by Netra Bikram Chand “Biplov”, is behind the incidents. The former Maoist outfit had called for a strike in central Nepal, demanding immediate release of Maila Lama, leader of the party who was arrested in Kathmandu two weeks ago.
