March 26, 2008 03:38 IST

A powerful bomb blast damaged the office of ruling Mizo National Front in Aizawl on Tuesday evening. The police said the bomb, which went off in front of the office named 'Hnam Run', damaged its window panes and iron grills.

Nobody was injured in the blast. Top police officers, who visited the spot after the blast, told PTI that the explosives may be gelatine, but further investigation would ascertain it later.

The entire state was in darkness at the time of the blast as power supply was snapped from outside the state for the second time. Chief minister Zoramthanga, other ministers and police officers, including state DGP Lalrokhuma Pachuau, visited the site.
