Though the BSF personnel swung into action, no militants were nabbed. A combing operation was launched by the state and central forces.

No militant outfit has taken responsibility for the attack.

In another incident, one bomb was exploded near Silshi village near the Behang boundary pillar in Churachandpur district. Again there was no casualty.
