April 29, 2018: On Sunday a bomb exploded at the office of a hydroelectricity project in eastern Nepal developed with Indian assistance, weeks before its inauguration by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.


As per reports, the compound wall of the 900 MW Arun III Hydroelectric Power Plant's office in Khandbari-9, Tumlingtar, nearly 500 km from Kathmandu, was damaged in the explosion.
The project is slated to come into operation by 2020.
The blast comes at a time when preparations are going on for laying foundation stone of the project by Modi during his official visit to Nepal on May 11.
No one was injured in the blast and an investigation has been launched.
It may be stated that no one has claimed responsibility of the blast.
A Project Development Agreement (PDA) for Arun III was signed with India's state-owned Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam (SJVN) on November 25, 2014 in the presence of the then Prime Minister Sushil Koirala and visiting Indian Prime Minister Modi.
This is the second blast within a month in Indian properties in Nepal.
