Imphal, July 05:

In less than two weeks miscreants hurled another Chinese made hand grenade to the residence Nongthombam Gojendra, Director, Agriculture Department, at Tera Sapam Leirak in Imphal West.
However, the hand grenade did not explode.
This is the second time that the miscreants attacked the Agriculture Director’s residence with bomb. Earlier, on June 24 night, miscreants lobbed a China-made hand grenade at the director’s house. The CCTV camera had caught two scooter-borne youth hurling the bomb. The shrapnel damaged some cars parked inside the compound and the front wall of the house.
The family told the police station at Lamphel that a member found the grenade when he went to collect the newspapers near the gate. On receipt of information, bomb experts and police commandos rushed to the house at Tera Sapam Leirak. The CCTV camera caught an unknown person throwing the hand grenade. So far, no outlawed underground organisation has claimed responsibility for the attack.
The family members say that they do not know whether any insurgent group was behind it. They have not received any threat from anyone, including insurgents.
Police have registered a case and no arrest has been made in connection with the two attacks.
