Eleven bombs planted by Maoists in Gaya and Aurangabad Lok Sabha constituencies in Bihar were found Wednesday by security forces, police said.

Gaya's Senior Superintendent of Police Nishant Tiwari said five "cane bombs" were recovered from Banke Bazaar area and near Sherghati. In Aurangabad, six similar bombs were found near Aruara and Pathakbigha village and other places.

Bihar will see six-phase polling beginning April 10. Gaya along with five Maoist-affected constituencies - Aurangabad, Sasaram, Jamui, Nawada and Karakat - will vote Thursday.

Prominent candidates include Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, Bihar Assembly Speaker Uday Narain Choudhary, former Kerala governor and Delhi Police chief Nikhil Kumar, LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan's son Chirag Paswan, and former union minister Kanti Singh.

Three CRPF troopers were killed in Aurangabad Monday when an improvised explosive device blew up while they were defusing it.
