Grenade blast at mayor-owned firm


CABANATUAN CITY – Motorcycle-riding suspects hurled a hand grenade which exploded inside the compound of an electric firm owned by the family of Mayor Julius Cesar Vergara in Barangay Bitas here Wednesday, police said.

Scene of the explosion is the Cabanatuan Electric Corp. (Celcor) which distributes electricity to this city.

Vergara, running for vice mayor under the ticket of his daughter Myca, has yet to comment.

Police Lt. Col. Ponciano Zafra, city police chief, said no one was injured in the incident.

A source from the Celcor said some people in the area scampered for safety upon seeing the grenade that fell near the guard post.

Zafra said investigation is still on going as the suspects managed to flee after the attack.
