Kathmandu, Apr 30: Four people, including a woman, were killed and 20 others wounded today when a powerful bomb stuck to a motorbike went off in a crowded market in southern Nepal near Indian border of Sitamadhi.

The blast at Ramananda Chowk of Janakpur Municipality in Dhanusha district occurred while a group of Madhesi activists were staging a sit-in demanding a separate Mithila state in the new Constitution.

Three people including a woman were killed on the spot while another man succumbed to death while undergoing treatment, police said.

A lesser known group called Janatantrik Terai Mukti Morcha has claimed the responsibility for the blast.

The site of the blast has been cordoned off and a hunt has been launched to identify those involved in the blast.

The blast comes at a time when political parties in the country are busy in holding negotiations to decide contentious issues to draft the new Constitution.
