Two persons, including a BSF jawan, have been injured in an IED blast at Amar, a remote tribal hamlet bordering Chittagong Hill Tract of Bangladesh in North Tripura district, police said on Friday.

“The blast took place on Thursday when an IED planted by suspected insurgents of outlawed National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) went off near a place where National Projects Construction Corporation (NPCC) personnel were engaged in barbed wire fencing,” DIG (police control) Nepal Chandra Das said.

Confirmed the report, BSF DIG A K Singh said, a BSF jawan and another person received minor injuries in the blast.

The ultras were trying to resist the fencing as it was posing a hurdle for them to enter the Indian territory from their base camp areas in the Chittagong Hill Tract in Bangladesh, Das said.
