Imphal, Feb 1: Manipur’s Deputy Chief Minister Gaikhangam had a miraculous escape on Sunday, when police commandos on patrol found a powerful bomb planted on a road through which the leader was scheduled to pass. Police of Bishnupur district spotted the bomb at Mallom Bomdier area, about 14 km from Imphal, shortly before Gaikhangam and his entourage arrived.

Gaikhangam holds the home portfolio and is also the state Congress president. He was the chief guest at a church function in Sadu Chiru village. He was stranded for over 30 minutes at Tiddim Road while the police bomb squad defused the explosive.

Police said the bomb was about one kg in weight and had 11 detonators. A manhunt was launched, but nobody has been arrested.

It is assumed that this may be work of some tribal organisations, as they had accused Gaikhangam, a tribal himself, of being an “anti-tribal” politician in past.
