The People’s Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak (Prepak) has claimed responsibility for the bomb blast on Monday night in Imphal that claimed the life of construction worker A. Kom and injured another seriously.

In a statement, the underground organisation said the blast was inadvertent and premature as the bomb was supposed to have exploded elsewhere, and apologised to people.

While family members of the deceased have been assured of “something meaningful” by the government, police and paramilitary personnel have beefed up security measures in and around Imphal.
