| June 3, 2009

KATHMANDU: As relatives grieved and the body of the third victim of the Nepal church bombing was consigned to flames, police said they had
arrested the Nepali woman who had planted the bomb that killed three people at prayer and injured more than a dozen.

“We arrested Sita Shrestha nee Thapa, a 27-year-old woman, who confessed she had taken the bomb to the Assumption Church in her handbag and hidden it in the prayer hall,” deputy inspector-general of police and spokesman of the force Vinod Singh told TNN.

Shrestha, a resident of Gyaneshwor in Kathmandu, was arrested from a different place — Baneshwor — at 3am Tuesday after investigation. Soon after the blast on May 23, the new government of Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal had formed a three-member team to probe the attack.
