Imphal: Two powerful remote-controlled bomb blasts on Friday rocked Manipur`s New Pheijang village, about 2 km away from the border bridge between the northeastern state and Myanmar, officials said.

H. Chaoba, Station House Officer (SHO) of the police station in Moreh, said the bombs were exploded in quick succession at 1.50 p.m. There was, however, no casualty.

Soon after the explosions, one police team led by Lawrence Mollu, the Sub Divisional Police Officer, made a spot inquiry. However, there was no arrest since the suspects had already fled. The police officer said a case was registered.
