Unidentified militants hurled a powerful grenade at the house of a government contractor in Imphal West District of Manipur but it failed to explode, police said on Sunday.

The militants lobbed the grenade at the house of contractor Ch. Ibohal (62) at Thangmeibandh Kabrabam Leikai near Imphal late last night, they said.

Ibohal and his family members were present in the house at the time of the incident and the unexploded grenade was defused today at 11 am at a safe place by the bomb experts, police said.

The motive behind the act was not known but monetary demand made to the contractor could be the reason, they said.
