The development comes a day after United Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) vice chairman Baburam Bhattarai refuting India’s allegation on training Communist Party of India (Maoist) cadres.

Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, UCPN (M)’s military wing leader Barsa Man Pun said that the ‘fake report’ on the issue was prepared by Nepal Army on directions of the Prime Minister.

“Under instructions from Nepal, the NA had prepared the fake report six months ago and sent it to India,” he said.

Pun said that the issue has been raked up to undermine credibility of Maoists and sideline them from the country’s ongoing peace process.

Foreign Minister Sujata Koirala said on Wednesday that the matter would be taken up at the next cabinet meeting and action initiated.

As earlier reported, India has submitted a letter to Nepal Home Minister Bhim Rawal on October 25 mentioning specific instances of Maoists in Nepal providing ideological and military training to CPI (Maoist) cadres.
