IMPHAL(Times OF India,21 Aug): A group of unidentified men triggered a grenade blast outside a private hospital at Thangal Bazaar near the
Assembly complex in the heart of Imphal on Friday morning leaving three persons, including a girl, wounded. The
attack came barely five days after a grenade was planted in the same clinic.

The injured in Friday’s blast were identified as Gudu Jain (8), a native of Rajasthan, Md Leihanmuddin (18) and Thokchom Tomba (45). Leihanmuddin suffered critical injuries and was admitted to a private hospital in Imphal.

Amid heightened security, police arrested a person, but refused to divulge his identity. According to sources, the blast could be the result of conflicts over monetary demands by rebel organizations.

Elsewhere in Thoubal, about 20 miscreants tried to torch a government office at Yairipok village on Thursday night. They stormed the sub-deputy collector’s office around 9 pm, sprinkled oil all over but failed to set it ablaze thanks to prompt actions by home guards deployed nearby.
