Imphal, Sep 18 (PTI) An attack in the highly guarded Raj Bhavan in Manipur was foiled when a powerful bomb planted in a car in the parking lot of the premises was found today.

Official sources said the car was quickly towed away and the bomb was defused at the Manipur Police Training Centre at Pangei later. Sources said Governor Gurbachan Jagat was not inside Raj Bhavan when the bomb was detected.

The car was reportedly parked this morning, the sources said, adding the genuiness of its numberplate was being ascertained.

Police were trying to find out how the car entered a heavily guarded area like Raj Bhavan, sources said.

No individual or group has so far claimed responsibility for the incident.
