The blast took place at around 1:30 pm. As per latest reports the injured jawan has been taken to Noor Hospital for treatment.

Assam Rifles had suffered a massive casualty in November last year when  Manipur-based People Liberation Army (PLA) & Manipur Naga People’s Front (MNPF)  had jointly executed an Ambush killing an Assam Rifles Colonel, his wife, child, and four other personnel. NIA is conducting a probe into the blasts.

It is to be mentioned that a number of explosions have taken place recently in poll-bound Manipur. It was only yesterday that PM Narendra Modi had visited Imphal which is hardly fifteen kilometers from the area where the IED explosion has taken place today
