The bomb was planted near a garbage dumping area in an iron container. The bomb is suspected to be planted by PLA, the armed wing of Revolutionary People’s Front in an attempt to attack to Assam Rifles personnel, as the bomb was detected ahead of Independence Demand Day of the proscribed outfit.
As soon as the bomb was detected, Assam Riffles blocked the Imphal Ukhrul road in order to prevent form any untoward incident. The bomb was safely detonated at the site by the bomb squad of 12 Bihar Regiment at around 9.10 am.   CO of 45 Assam Rifles and High Ranking Officers of Manipur Police inspected the site.
