Imphal: Proscribed outfit People’s Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak (PREPAK) has claimed responsibility for the bomb blast at Wangoo Tera area that injured two Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) personnel in Kakching district on Sunday evening.

The incident happened when the troops were patrolling the area on election duty.

The injured personnel were identified as constables Gaurav Rai and Giriji Shankar, both from Uttarakhand.

As per the outfit’s statement, the attack was “part of expressing solidarity to the boycott call by Coordination Committee (CorCom)”, an umbrella outfit, for the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit in Manipur on Tuesday.

As per the statement by the ‘Department of Publicity and Propaganda’ of PREPAK, the attack was carried out by the Special Task Force C of the Red Army, the armed wing of the revolutionary group.

“Two IEDs were planted but only one detonated. It was lucky that the second one didn’t went off as it would have inflicted serious damages (sic.), ” stated the outfit.

PREPAK also urged the people to stay away from the “colonial army”, while appealing to the people not to support the visit of the prime minister, whom the proscribed outfit said is “coming with a hidden agenda to destroy Manipur”.
