Kathmandu, January 1: An underground armed group called United Revolutionary Front of Bhutan (URFB) has taken the responsibility of massive explosion in Sarpang on December 30.

Unlike what the regime reported, URFB circulated a release stating that it attacked armed police force personnel at Singay village in Sarpang district and looted arms and ammunition. The government media earlier reported that those killed by the blast were all foresters.

The release signed by its chief commander Karma said that the attack killed five on the spot and wounded dozens of Bhutanese army personnels. Bhutan News Service
