Explosion near security outpost in Imphal
Unidentified miscreants for the second day in a row hurled a hand-grenade at a security outpost where BSF jawans were posted leading to a blast in Imphal Saturday evening.
The explosion occurred at around 5.30 pm at Kwakeithel Leimakhujam Leikai in the State capital town, officials said. The blast came just a day ahead of the inauguration of the ten-day-long annual Sangai tourism festival.
No casualty was sustained in the attack against the central forces, the officer said, adding additional forces have been rushed to the site to inspect the scene.
The attack comes a day after two CRPF Jawans were injured after unidentified miscreants hurled a hand-grenade towards them near the vicinity of the state Assembly complex at Lilashing Khong Nang Khong in the capital town.
The blast on Saturday is the fifth this month in the Imphal area.
