People protested against a bomb blast at a locality in Imphal East on Wednesday.

The protestors expressed their concerns “for disturbing peace and tranquillity” of the area.

A hand grenade hurled by miscreant(s) exploded at the front courtyard of a building belonging to one W Seityabala, wife of late Lelian at Nongmeibung Wangkheilakpam Leikai under Porompat police station of Imphal East district Tuesday night, around 7.30 pm.

Except damaging three cars parked at the courtyard, there was no human casualty in the explosion which police suspected that it was triggered by cadres of a militant group in connection with monetary demands.

Police quoting local sources said that two motorcycle borne youths hurled the grenade.
