NEEMUCH: A tribal couple was today killed in an IED explosion in their hut in Piparva village here.               

"Udaram Bhil (40) and Narmada (25), both labourers, were blown to pieces in the explosion. Parts of the IED and the trigger were recovered from their hut. We are probing how it landed in the hut...we are tracing their antecedents," Superintendent of Police Tarun Nayak said.
