It may be mentioned, a powerful blast rocked a house at Lumkynsai, Smit under the Madanrting Police Station on Monday claiming the life of one person identified as Pynsuklang Khongwir.
The powerful blast as reported was due to the explosion of the “electric mattress” which caused damage to some rooms of the house on the ground floor. However, SP Nongtynger in a police statement on Monday said during the examination of the blast spot, bits and pieces of power source for the initiation of the blast were identified. The Bomb Squad team and CSU team are verifying the cause of the explosion.
