Last night, two persons suspected to be NSCN (IM) hurled two hand grenades in Hundung area, injuring one jawan.

It is learnt that the 04 Indian Reserve Batalian(IRB) jawans were deployed there a week ahead of the Chief Minister's visit.

Though the blasts took place before Chief Minister Ibobi's visit, he is still going to visit the Ukhrul. (ANI)
