Powerful bomb blasts in Sarlahi; three critically injured


SARLAHI: As the election of the Constituent Assembly (CA) is approaching and the government is mulling strict security measures for the poll, a pressure cooker bomb went off at the District Survey Office in Sarlahi headquarters Malangawa on Friday.

According to local media reports, over dozen people have been injured in the blast. Among them, three have sustained critical injuries.

The bomb went off at around 11.45 this morning, when a large crowd of service seekers was gathered in the office. The bomb was placed at the gate of the office.

Although no one has claimed responsibility for the blast, pamphlets of Akhil Tarai Mukti Morcha were found in the premises. The group was formally known as Janatantrik Terai Mukti Morcha, and is led by Jaya Krishna Goit. Some armed groups of tarai have been warning that they would foil the election of the constituent assembly as the rulers have been serving only the people of hill community.

The incident has posed serious threat to the election slated for November 19 with 33-party alliance also warning to foil the election at any cost and warning to take physical action against people taking part in elections.

The motive behind the blast is yet to be ascertained. Meanwhile, security has been tightened in the area.
