A bomb exploded in the office of the Congress Youth Forum in interior Thoubal district of Manipur late last night, damaging office property.

Officials said that hundreds of local residents including women launched a sit-in protest against the incident this morning.

Assailants have been attacking the houses of politicians - both ruling and opposition - in the past few weeks by hurling grenades or bombs at their houses.

Sources said security and police forces have been alerted by the state government to prevent any untoward incident during the coming Manipur Assembly elections in February next.
