Goit's group plants bomb targeting another Saptari school
RAJBIRAJ: An improvised explosive device has been found on the premises of Laxmi English Boarding School at Rajbiraj Municipality-5 in Saptari district this morning.
Superintendent of Police Dibesh Lohani said a team deployed from the Rajbiraj-based Krishna Dal Battalion of Nepal Army, the District Police Office and an Armed Police Force office have reached the incident site to defuse the bomb.
Meanwhile, pamphlets bearing the name of Janatantrik Tarai Mukti Morcha (JTMM-G) have been found at the incident site.
The group led by Jaya Krishna Goit had also planted a socket bomb on the premises of Peace Zone English Boarding School in Rajbiraj Municipality-9 yesterday.
Goit had issued a press statement taking responsibility for the crime.
“As the school had run classes defying the Tarai bandh called for December 8 last year, it was imperative to teach it a lesson for its act of defiance," Goit said in his statement.
