The reference is found on p. 5 f. of Hahn's introduction:

Naya Raj Pant: /Pyāskalena svopajñam iti prakhyāpitam  
pāṭīgaṇitatribhujaṃ Vṛttaratnākaroktaikadvyādilagakriyaiva/ (“The  
arithmetical triangle, claimed to be his own discovery by Pascal, is  
nothing but the /Ekadvyādilagakriyā/ as told in the  
/Vṛttaratnākara/”), published in the first volume of /Jayatu  
Saṃskṛtam/, 1:4 Vikramasaṃvat 2017 (1960), pp. 1-8, Kathmandu.
