SIRAHA, Dec 22: Three people were injured when an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) went off at the Land Revenue Office (LRO) of Siraha on Friday.
The bomb, which was planted below a sofa, injured Raj Kumar Paswan, Roshan Paswan and Pawan Paswan of Siraha Municipality-11. They have been admitted to the District Hospital for the treatment.
As informed by SP Shekhar Koirala, police chief of Siraha, the injured are now out of danger.
The windows of the room were broken after the incident. However, there were no serious damages. Police are yet to find out those involved in the explosion.
