Three persons -- two Manipur Rifles jawans and a driver -- were injured when militants exploded a powerful bomb at the housing complex of a Manipur government official at Mantripukhri in the outsikrst of Imphal, official sources said on Monday.


The bomb exploded at the housing complex of managing director of Manipur Development Society Y Ningthem injuring his two security guards belonging to 2nd Manipur Rifles battalion and a driver on Sunday night. The car of the official was destroyed.

The condition of one jawan identified as TH Dhanachandra was stated to be serious.
