ALOR GAJAH: A woman was seriously injured when a box she was carrying, believed to contain a homemade bomb, exploded in front of her house in Lubok China here yesterday.

Earlier, Norasyikin Md Esa, 27, found the box in front of her house in Kampung Ramuan China Besar about 8.40am.

As it was addressed to her brother, Saiful Eszwan, 35, she carried the box while opening the main gate to go to work at a shopping complex in Masjid Tanah where she worked as cashier.

At that juncture, the bomb exploded, injuring Norasyikin in the face and body.

She was warded at the Malacca Hospital where her condition was reported to be stable.

Melaka CID chief ACP Raja Shahrom Raja Abdullah said the homemade bomb contained gasoline and other unidentifiable materials.

He said, initial investigations revealed the bomb was “linked” to Saiful who worked as a cleaning contractor.

“We are investigating the matter from various angles, with the aid of a bomb disposal and forensics units, to derive the motive behind the incident,” he said, adding that the case was being investigated under the Firearms Act
