BHAKTAPUR: A pressure cooker bomb has gone off in the house of former Minister for Communication and Information Technology Gokul Prasad Baskota in Bhaktapur.

The bomb went off in the Baskota’s house based at Manohara in Madhyapur Thimi Municipality this morning, Superintendent of Police (SP) Sabin Pradhan told Khabarhub.

According to an eyewitness, a maruti van being parked on the premises of the under-construction house sustained damages in the explosion.
