JTMM-Jwala captures former CJ's house in Siraha
The Jwala Singh-led Janatantrik Terai Mukti Morcha (JTMM) has captured the ancestral house of former Chief Justice Keshav Prasad Upadhyaya in Siraha district.
A group of some 25 JTMM-Jwala cadres led by central leader Swami Yadav captured Upadhyaya’s two-storey house at Bishnupu Chowk in Bishnupur VDC-4 Tuesday night, reports said. The JTMM men also fired shots in air warning of physical action to anybody who buys the property.
Last month, the JTMM had captured the former CJ’s land in Lahan.
Besides targeted killings and abduction, the two JTMM factions have been capturing lands of political leaders and local landlords in Terai districts.
