Four persons were injured today when a powerful bomb, apparently meant to target BSF personnel, exploded in Manipur’s interior Churachandpur district bordering Myanmar.

The bomb planted at a roadside near a movie theatre was  set off by suspected militants using remote-controlled device at around 9 am injuring four persons, police officials said.

Official reports from the district said the explosion was an attempt to target BSF personnel who are deployed in the area, but no BSF personnel was injured in the incident.

The identity of the militants is not yet known as different extremist organisations operate in the district, police officials said.
