Imphal: Two CRPF personnel on poll duty were killed in an ambush by militants even as four powerful bombs planted near polling stations were seized and defused before polling for the Manipur Assembly began Saturday morning.

The CRPF personnel were killed yesterday when militants ambushed them in Ukhrul district, official sources said.

They said the bombs were suspected to have been planted by militants in Khurai Chingangbam area, Sawombung High School, Khomidok in Imphal East district and Naoremthong High School area in Imphal West district to disturb the polls.

The explosives were seized and defused, they said.

An official report said an 80-year old woman was killed last Thursday in interior Tamenglong hill district when suspected militants attacked a Congress party office with bombs.
