The bomb disposal squad defused the explosive at around 1 AM on Wednesday.

According to reports, some unknown individuals deposited the plastic bag near the Khonghampat bridge at 10:30 PM on Tuesday. This bridge is also close to the Army barracks at the old Koirengei airfield and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) headquarters.

Recently, multiple reports of powerful bombs were planted and exploded across Imphal. However, no one has been arrested in connection with these instances. In certain situations, a single banned insurgent organization claimed responsibility.
