KCP (MC) owns responsibility

Militant group Kangleipak Communist Party (Military Council) has owned responsibility for Tuesday’s night’s blast in Imphal in which 17 people were killed and 30 injured. The outfit in a press release stated that the explosion was carried out by the special demo team of KCP (MC) to put an end to gambling, alleging that security forces were forcing people to gamble in the name of Diwali.
Meanwhile, according to PTI, hundreds of local residents Wednesday took out a demonstration and launched sit-in protests against Tuesday night’s bomb blast. Official sources said local residents of Ragailong, where the blast occurred, and neighbouring Khurai and Lamlong areas organised sit-in protests against last night’s incident. Placards put up by the protesters read: “what was the fault of the victims,” “why explode bomb at the crowded area.”
