A bomb exploded at the office of a major hydropower project being constructed with Indian assistance in Nepal last Wednesday, the second such incident at the facility in over a month. An unidentified group exploded an improvised explosive device in the office of Arun III hydropower in Tumlingtar, nearly 500 km from Kathmandu.
The explosion did not cause any serious damage and no one was injured in the incident, according to the police. Security arrangements have been intensified following the incident, he said.  On April 29, a CPN Maoist faction had exploded a bomb at the office of the project weeks before its inauguration by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
