Imphal: A powerful bomb was found today
from near a pharmacy in the crowded Imphal market complex
locally known as Khwairamband in Manipur.

The bomb hidden in a bag was later defused by the bomb
squad personnel, official reports said.

The police said an unknown person came to the market
to buy medicine from a pharmacy shop owned by W Ranbir
yesterday and left the bag with the bomb in front of it.

Ranbir, when opened the shop this morning, thought
someone forgot his bag. A letter was found inside his shop
saying "Warning Ranbir" and the bag before your shop contains
a bomb.

He immediately informed the police who later recovered
the bag with the bomb.

Investigations have been continuing on the identity of
the person who placed the bomb in a tight security area.
Shop-owners and women vendors protested the incident
and appealed to the militants not to do so in a crowded area,
the police said.
