Army diffuses three IEDs, saves Manipur from major blast

Imphal: Indian Army's alert soldiers successfully avoided a major accident by effectively diffusing three large Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) in Manipur on Sunday, officials said. "During a routine area domination and surveillance operation in Imphal East district, soldiers noticed three powerful IEDs on the road connecting Nongdam Tangkhul and Etham Tangkhul villages near Maphou Dam," said Defence spokesman Lt. Col. Amit Shukla.

"The three IEDs were placed along the road. Army columns acted swiftly and cordoned off the area. Subsequently, a bomb disposal squad arrived at the location and diffused the IEDs safely, thereby preventing potential loss of life and injury to locals,” Lt Col Shukla said. "The security forces remain steadfast and committed to the safety of citizens in the state of Manipur," he stated.

A senior Manipur Police official said that search operations and area domination were conducted by security forces in the fringe and vulnerable areas of hill and valley districts. Strict security measures are taken up in all vulnerable locations and security convoys are provided in sensitive stretches in order to ensure free and safe movement of the vehicles, he said.

A total of 125 nakas/checkpoints were installed in different districts of ethnic violence-hit Manipur and Police detained 132 persons on Saturday in connection with violations of law in different districts of the state.
