german bakery, pune, india. torn apartFour Nepali nationals have been injured in the deadly German Bakery blast in the Indian city of Pune on Saturday (yesterday) that killed nine people. The nationality of one of the dead could not be ascertained, but his name is said to be Gokul Nepali. Some workers at the Bakery said that their colleague 32-year-old Gokul Padewa from Nuwakot district in Nepal have been missing since yesterday. Padewa was inside the Bakery when the bomb exploded. It was not clear till late Sunday (today) if Gokul Nepali and Gokul Padewa were the same person.

At least 55 people were injured in the incident. The injured Nepalis work at the Bakery that is run by their compatriot from Nuwakot district in central Nepal. Two of the injured–Paras Rimal and Manish Shrestha–hail from Nuwakot, while Ganga Magar and Pravin Panta are from Bara and Kathmandu respectively. Paras was undergoing treatment at local Sassoon Hospital until late afternoon today.

The Hospital sources said they could not verify Gokul Nepali’s address. Also, the name and address of two other dead persons has not been known.

A total of 70 Nepalis work in the Bakery that is popular among foreigners who go to the nearby Osho Ashram. a Jewish Chhabad house and a synagogue are half a kilometer away from the bakery.

A few Nepalis who tried to meet owner of the Bakery, Gopal Karki, said their effort was futile. “May be he is too busy helping police in investigation,” said a Nepali living in Puna. Originally opened by a German, the Bakery is being run by Karki for the past 25 years.

    Friends, I am still shocked about what has happened.I am very touched and feel with you. The German Bakery has been a home for me since a lot of years; always very good food and drinks, very friendly service and a very good atmosphere. Hope you all will recover and rebuild the German Bakery.

    This entire process that the government uses for taking somebody’s property is known as eminent domain. Well,
    if you have any idea that this thing happens only with the third world county then you are entirely wrong because it actually happens in United States.
