Bomb blast in the only night club in Manipur; Three people injured

Blast in Manipur: 3 people injured
Imphal, Aug 18: Three persons were injured from a bomb explosion in the imposing building of the first and only night club in Manipur, "Route 39" on Saturday night. This club is located along highway 39 at Mantri Pukhri about 4 km away from Imphal.

The remote controlled bomb, planted by a militant, exploded at the open air waiting shed for the visitors. Police says that there would have been much more casualty if this bomb had gone off at the crowded areas.

Sources said that on Saturday night one youth carrying a small shoulder bag entered and lounged at the waiting shed for some time. It is believed that he managed to leave the remote controlled bomb. He then left the shed and sped away in a motorbike without any registration number.

Sensing that something was amiss some of the private security guards scanned the area and found one small packet wrapped in a plastic sheet. The management immediately informed the nearby police station at Heingang. However before the bomb could be removed the militants detonated it using remote control, reported The Hindu.

Police have collected the CCTV footage in a bid to identify the militant.

The night club and several shops nearby reportedly belong to a relative of Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh.
