Third IED explodes in Gelephu

Nov 22, 2012

Another Improvised Explosive Device (IED) exploded last night near the RNR RDC centre in Samtenling Gewog (formerly known as Bhur) in Sarpang. Samtenling Gewog is about eight kilometres away from Gelephu.

This is the third such explosion within two months.

The IED was planted, five hundred metres below the Gelephu-Sarpang Highway in a gully. It exploded at 10:15 p.m.

There was no casualty or damage caused to property.

Police said the mode of operation is similar to the previous explosions. The people behind the blast left a pamphlet of the Bhutan United Socialist Democratic Party, which is based in the camps in Nepal.

    police should shoot whenever possible coz they are threatening and indirectly jeopardizing nepalese ethnic’s lives. Please capture and decapitate them, and if possible let us have our own share to satisfy our wrath for these people.

  9. Its really disheartening to hear these stories. Is our ruling party doing anything on the issue. Before it escalates, it should give no way further to disturb our peace and harmony of our land.

    Guys, ruling party cannot do anything on this. At the most they make it as a hot issue in the country. However they don’t have authority towards the control of arm force. They are handicapped.

    This is keeping fear in minds of people in Gelephu-Sarpang area ignited constantly. The necessary and prompt action is mandatory. Why this mishaps repeat in that areas. Please do something or it would be too late when we open ourselves seriously at last moment. Sooner the better……..
