Unidentified groups have detonated a bomb in a ward office of Kakani rural municipality in Nuwakot and torched a ward office at Chandapur municipality in Rautahat on Wednesday morning.
Official documents, printers, and computers in the ward offices were destroyed in the arson attacks, according to local authorities. However, nobody has claimed the responsibility for the blasts so far.
The cadres of banned Netra Bikram Chand-led Nepal Communist Party are said to be involved in the incidents. The outfit has called Bandh (strike) in central Nepal including Kathmandu Valley for today demanding the immediate release of Maila Lama, a key leader of the party who was arrested from Kathmandu two weeks ago.
