Four people were injured when some unidentified people lobbed a petrol bomb on a truck in Meghalaya's Jaintia Hills district, police said in Shillong on Thursday.

The incident coincided with a two-day night road blockade enforced by the Jaintia Students Union in the district from Tuesday night to press for their various demands.

The bomb was hurled on the truck at Newhill on Wednesday night injuring the four persons, including the driver.

Police said the injured had been admitted to a nearby hospital where the condition of two of them was stated to be
serious.

Meanwhile, one more vehicle was attacked with a petrol bomb at Ladthadladoh as picketers burnt tyres at several places to enforce the blockade.

The blockade ended this morning.
