Imphal, Aug 10 (IANS) A bomb exploded near the Manipur University in Imphal on Wednesday, hours after a four-year-old girl was injured when insurgents attacked a Border Security Force (BSF) patrol at Maphou village in Imphal east district.
The first bomb exploded around 9 a.m. The BSF personnel escaped unharmed in the blast that was triggered by remote control.
The university students were in the classrooms when the blast took place.
Initial reports said that there was no casualty. The terrified students rushed out of their classrooms.
