Moga, June 30

A courier parcel exploded at Baghapurana town in Moga district on Tuesday, leaving one person injured.

The man, identified as Phulli Ram Thakur (47), a resident of Mudki Road, Baghapurana, was the delivery man of the courier company.

Preliminary investigation revealed that ‘explosive material’ was packed in the parcel, which was dispatched by a person named Deepika from Adrash Mohala, Nabha Gate, Sangrur. It was to be delivered to Nirbhai Singh at Gulab Singh Wala village.

Two delivery men went from Moga to deliver the courier. When they reached Baghapurana, they stopped at the local franchise unit of the firm. One of the persons lighted a cigarette, which could have triggered the blast.

Thakur got injuries on his arm and leg, while his associate Sonu had a narrow escape. The police did not rule out the possibility of ‘foul play’. — TNS
