Kathmandu, May 26 (UNI): At least three persons were killed and five sustained to severe burn injuries in twin explosions in Nepal's capital Kathmandu on Sunday evening, a spokesperson of the Nepal Police confirmed.

As per preliminary reports, two people died when a cooking gas cylinder exploded inside a hair salon in Sukedhara while one person died in Ghattekulo in the cylinder blast.

According to police the cylinders that exploded could have been improvised as explosive devices or could have been planned for planting them somewhere in the capital by the members of the Communist Party of Nepal led by Chand, which had given a call for general strike on Monday.

"Preliminary investigation shows that one person who was injured in the blast at Ghattekulo was a cadre of the Chand-led outfit," The Kathmandu post quoted Metropolitan Police spokesperson SSP Shyam Lal Gyawali as saying.

Earlier in February also the Chand-led outfit carried out at a blast in Nakkhu in which one eprson was killed while two others were injured.
