“Although the miscreants behind the incident cannot be identified, the authorities suspects the proscribed group Kangleipak Communist Party,  People's War Group (Marxist Centre) to be behind the incident as the proscribed group on October 24 had issued a notice to boycott all private rehab centres in the state indefinitely,” it stated. It is not clear if the IED was targeted at the rehab centre or the security forces, it added.
