There was a powerful bomb blast near the gate of the Naga People’s Front’s (NPF) office in Dewlaland Imphal at midnight last night. Police immediately rushed to the spot, and an FIR was lodged at the Chingmeirong Police Station, Imphal East.
There have been no reported casualties and an investigation into the matter is underway. Awangbou Newmai, President NPF Manipur, said that they have no clue about who might have caused the bomb blasts and that they will wait for the police to conduct their investigations.
The NPF is a political party with its mass base in Nagaland and Manipur. They gained much popularity for attempting to solve the Naga people’s problems non-violently and constitutionally. The party has also appealed to rebels to stop factional fights and concentrate on the betterment of all Nagas, not just sections of them.
