KATHMANDU, April 23: An unidentified group on Sunday evening hurdled a bomb at the house of Chief Election Commissioner Ayodhee Prasad Yadav in Dhapakhel, Lalitpur.
“The bomb hurdled toward our house went off late in the evening. The wall of the house has been badly damaged and the glasses have shattered,” said Shyam Yadav, son of the CEC.
According to Yadav, the glasses of their neighbors' houses have also broken. “Police are investigating into the matter,” said Yadav.
He said no human casualty has been reported in the blast.
CEC Yadav, who successfully conducted three sets of elections within a year, has recently come under scrutiny after the Office of the Auditor General pointed toward his involvement in financial irregularities in course of holding the elections.
