Imphal, Feb 4: A powerful hand grenade exploded on Saturday in Imphal’s Hapta Kangjeibung where a fashion show was expected to be held and actress Sunny Leone was scheduled to attend on Sunday, officials said.

Police said that no one was injured in the incident, and suspects it to be the handiwork of the underground militants.

The police personnel of the Porompat police station have filed a case and a probe is on.
