Kathmandu: A small explosion has hit an Indian consulate camp office in Nepal's Biratnagar, officials said. No one was injured in the explosion that took place at the temporary office of the Indian consulate at the province capital, 380 kilometres from Kathmandu.

The explosion was reported at 8:20 pm on Monday. It created a hole on the compound wall of the embassy camp, which is toward the secluded rear area of the main office building, officials said.

The temporary office was set up by India during the floods in Nepal and north Bihar in 2015. The office has been functioning since then.

No one was at the camp when the explosion struck, officials said.

Russia questions visa denial for Skripal relative

  Russia questions visa denial for Skripal relative The Russian Embassy has questioned why a relative of Sergei and Yulia Skripal has been denied a visa to visit them in the UK. Viktoria Skripal, a cousin of Ms Skripal who has claimed the UK has "something to hide", wanted to travel from Moscow to visit the pair as they recover from the nerve agent attack in Salisbury, but has been denied entry to Britain.In a statement, the Russian Embassy accused the Foreign Office of failing to answer questions over why her application had been rejected.

Senior police officer Arun Kumar said they are investigating who could be behind the explosion, the Kathmandu Post reported.

Investigators suspect that members of a local political group, which had called a strike in Biratnagar on Monday, could have a hand in the explosion.
