Janakpur Bomb Incidence – 1961 AD
Democratic parties revolted, in an organized or unorganized way, against the imposition of the Panchayat in 1961. This led the opposition against the king and monarchy. During the visit of King Mahendra in the following year, the Nepali Congress under the leadership of Durgananda Jha blasted a bomb targeting the car in which the king was traveling. After the event, Durgananda Jha, Arbinda Kumar Thakur and Dalsing Thapa Magar were detained. Durgananda was later shot to death on 1963 AD(2020 BS). Arabinda and Dalsing were awarded death sentence and lateron converted to life sentence.
