More bombs found near Jha's residence

world Updated: Sep 15, 2009 17:47 IST

For the second consecutive day, a couple of bombs were discovered near the residence of Nepal's Vice President Paramananda Jha, who has been at the centre of a row for taking the oath of office in Hindi.

However, the security forces defused the explosives before they could explode, Jha's aide said.

On Sunday, a bomb disposal squad of the Nepal Army had defused a bomb planted near his residence.

On August 28, a bomb had exploded near Jha's residence, injuring one people. Kirat Republican Workers' Party (KRWP), an armed outfit, had claimed responsibility for the blast.

This is the fifth time that bombs were found near his house.

Jha has been stripped of his guards and facilities two weeks ago after he defied a court order to re-take oath in Nepali language.

He is currently in long leave and his post is almost defunct.
