Security agencies have reported to Crown Prince Paras that senior Maoist leaders Baburam Bhattarai and Krishna Bahadur Mahara have reached India traveling past Raj Parisad Council chairman Parshunarayan Chaudhary's house in Dang district of western Nepal. In a report prepared for the royal palace, the security agencies have stated that the Maoist leaders sneaked out to India just when government officials were engaged in Tihar celebrations.The Maoist leaders are said to have used the jungle in Gobadiya in Deukhuri as a secret corridor to reach India. This area near Kapilbastu is believed to be quite weak from security point of view. It is the same area where the border security personnel of Nepal and India recently held a meeting.
