An improvised explosive device (IED) believed to have been planted by rebels went off at the ‘no man’s land zone’ near Moreh town early Saturday morning around 5:20 am.
Police said that there was no casualty in the blast.  The IED was triggered at a time when security is being beefed up across the state for Independence Day celebrations on August 15.
State police suspect the rebels triggered the blast to showcase their presence ahead of the Independence Day of India.
Meanwhile, security personnel have been deployed across Imphal city, particularly in the vicinity of 1st Manipur Rifle battalion campus, the venue of main Independence Day celebration event in the state. Besides conducting mopping operation at sensitive places across the valley districts, random frisking and checking have been intensified.  The security measures have been taken to ensure peaceful celebrations of the Independence Day, a police official said Saturday.
Although there were no inputs about the possibility of rebel attacks to disrupt the celebrations, the security grid is not taking any chances, the officer added.
