Kathmandu, Sep.6 (ANI): At least four leaders of the Nepal Defence Army (NDA), including its chairman R.P Mainali, have been arrested for possessing arms.

The NDA leaders were arrested at about 11 a.m. this morning from the Rajgadh Village Defence Committee.

A special squad deployed from the police headquarters in Kathmandu and another team deployed from Regional Police Directorate, Biratnagar arrested Mainali and his friends, reports Nepal News.

The NDA is a Hindu extremist organisation which has been accused of bombing churches, mosques, and various other places across the country.

Police have already established its involvement in some of the cases.

Mainali, who was released on bail after being arrested once, was on the most-wanted list of the police recently.

Police had intensified the search for Mainali and other NDA operatives after the Dhobighat church bomb blast in May that claimed three lives and wounded dozen others.

Police had also asked the Interpol to issue an international arrest warrant against Mainali. (ANI)
