No casualty was reported in the incident.

A police officer said the blast occurred late Monday night at around 9.30 am and the sound of the explosion triggered alert among the locals of the area.

The locals managed to apprehend the two suspicious persons, the officer said.

The nabbed duo identified as RK Napolean (36) and Angom Punin Kumar (39) were brutally thrashed by the youths of the locality, the officer said.

Unofficial reports said that one woman who came with the two managed to escape taking advantage of the chaos.

However, the police were yet to confirm this.

The apprehended two militans were later handed over to Porompat Police Station by the women activists (Meira Paibis).

Police also said that one licensed gun was also discovered inside the four-wheeler in which the trio had come.
