Buddha Boy Bomjan Secure!

nepal police security to buddha boy

With 39 policemen guarding him from 9 AM to 5 PM daily, the meditating Buddha boy of Bara district, southern Nepal, must be feeling secure under the tree these days. A security committee formed to protect the boy gives him security in the morning and evening. Ram Bahadur Bamjon was seen 18 days ago after he disappeared from the meditating venue a few months ago. The committee has said that number of people thronging in to the venue to get a glimpse of the little Buddha has decreased. Ram Bahadur sports long hair these days. Pic by Updendra Lamichhane
