According to CNN News18, the blast occurred near the main road of the BSF sector headquarters Koirengi campus killing the two men on duty.

Speaking to Scroll, Imphal East Police chief, K Meghachandra said, "Two jawans succumbed to their injuries in the hospital while a woman and a shopkeeper has been injured in the attack".

None of Manipur’s militant groups have claimed the attack so far, the report added.

This is the second attack on security personnel in a week in the state.

On Tuesday, a jawan of Assam Rifles was injured as two grenades were lobbed at the office of the military unit by unidentified men in Imphal.

Last year, four people including an Assam Rifles jawan, were injured in an IED explosion in a busy commercial locality of Imphal.

In November 2017, an IED bomb blast in Chandel district of Manipur near the India-Myanmar border killed two Assam Rifles jawans namely Indra Singh and Sohalal. The explosion also led to the deaths of six others.
