For the first time, the Maoists are reported to have detonated an explosive in Indian territory. They placed a copper pitcher filled with 30kg of gunpowder on a road adjoining the Mahakali River across the western Nepal border. The explosive device was meant for the Nepali security forces that patrol the area but a team from the Indian Special Services Bureau (SSB) discovered the homemade bomb early morning on 26 January. A Nepali security unit and soldiers of the Indian army's ninth Gorkha Rifles reached the site to defuse the bomb. The SSB cordoned off the area, saying they needed to examine the material. Officers with the Indian army believe the rebels planted the bomb four days ago.
