BSF personal injured in IED blast carried out by PLA in Manipur
One of the personnel serving with the Indian paramilitary organization Border Security Force (BSF) was hurt in a bomb explosion, which was later blamed on the rebel group People’s Liberation Army of Manipur (PLA).
According to the Manipur State Police, the incident occurred at about 4:30 pm yesterday. The explosion took place near a waiting shed in Heirok Part II Ningthoujam Leikai, when a team of BSF personnel were passing through the area. The BSF personnel were returning to their base at Chingdongpok, after completing their routine patrol operations in Heirok Bazaar. Preliminary investigations indicated that the explosion was caused by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). A civilian who was present near the site of the explosion also suffered minor injuries, after being hit by the bomb shrapnel.
The injured BSF personal was later identified as a 45 –year old member of the force from the Northern Indian state of Haryana. He is currently admitted to the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), in the state capital of Imphal. BSF officials said that his condition is stable, and added that he had suffered injuries to his neck and right hand, after being hit by bomb shrapnel.
T Leishemba, senior PLA operative confirmed the participation of the rebel group in the attack. He claimed that a number of BSF personnel lost their lives, and many more were seriously injured during the explosion. He accused the paramilitary group of covering up its own casualties.
In a related incident, the Indian security forces prevented another bomb attack near the city of Lamphel, after they found and deactivated another explosive device later on yesterday. The device was located near the office of the Border Road Task Force (BRTF), and was later deactivated by the local police.
