IMPHAL, July 29: Some unidentified persons have placed a Chinese hand grenade at the residence of government contractor Laishram Birendrajit of Thangmeiband Lourungpurel Leikai at around 2:30 pm today.
According to Birendrajit, two youths came to enquire him to his residence but he was not present at that time. His brother asked them to meet him later on but they insisted to give his mobile number. After his brother failed to provide them his mobile number, they pulled out a polythene bag containing hand grenade and placed it on the roof of a car that was parked in the courtyard.
He further stated that the matter could be related to his contract works. Few months back he had declined to surrender one of his contracts as asked by one KCP (Wareppa) group.
The police later recovered the grenade and defused it safely.
