One new pair of positive-parity chiral doublet bands have been identified in the odd-A nucleus Nd-135 which together with the previously reported negative-parity chiral doublet bands constitute a third case of multiple chiral doublet (M chi D) bands in the A approximate to 130 mass region. The properties of the M chi D bands are well reproduced by constrained covariant density functional theory and particle rotor model calculations. The newly observed M chi D bands in Nd-135 represents an important milestone in supporting the existence of M chi D in nuclei.
