Minor blast outside Indian embassy's office in Nepal's Kathmandu, no casualties

A pressure cooker bomb went off close to India's camp office at Biratnagar in eastern Nepal on Monday night though there were no reports of casualties, police said on Tuesday. According to an Indian Army source, the explosion took place at Biratnagar at the Indian Embassy Consulate office. A wall of the Indian compound, set up to coordinate movement of vehicles in the border area after widespread floods in 2008 closed the main road, was damaged, said Seshnarayan Paudel, a senior district official. Police said they are investigating to find out who caused the blast in the office. "The security authorities in Nepal are investigating the matter", said a statement from an Indian foreign ministry spokesperson.

None of the employee was present inside the building at the time of explosion. No one claimed responsibility and the motive was not known, he said. Investigating officers suspect that cadres of a local political group have caused the blast.
