Dainik Nepal quoted Superintendent of Police Arun Kumar BC as saying that because of the explosion, the office wall on the west side was slightly damaged.

To assist smooth facilitation of the Nepali vehicles via Indian land from Biratnagar to Birgunj, India had temporarily set up the field office in Biratnagar. For now, the investigating officials said they suspected the involvement of Netra Bikram Chand's Communist Party of Nepal, which called a general protest in Biratnagar on Monday.

The security in the blast site and around office premises has been upped after the blast.

Biratnagar is the industrial capital of Nepal and is from a distance of 6 kilometres from the border of north Bihar.
