An explosion in Manipur's Moreh town on Wednesday afternoon claimed the lives of two people.
As per several media outlets, the blast has been suspected to be caused by a bomb from the World War II era.
Two youths were digging the ground in Langkhichoi village when they found the bomb, triggering a blast immediately. As per reports, the deceased youths have been identified as siblings Lienkhogin Gangte and Lalsangmoun Gangte.
Notably, a TOI report published November last year stated that "At least 122 bombs, believed to be of World War II-era, were found at Manipur's Moreh town bordering Myanmar on Tuesday (November 17) morning". Further, in April 2017, 18 WWII-era bombs and 600 bullets were found there while digging earth for the construction of a wall.
