Additional paramilitary forces sent to Assam

Additional para-military forces were rushed to Assam after seven people were killed and 20 others injured in a powerful bomb explosion set off by the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) in Guwahatis Athgaon area yesterday.

New Delhi/Guwahati, May 27 : Additional para-military forces were rushed to Assam after seven people were killed and 20 others injured in a powerful bomb explosion set off by the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) in Guwahati's Athgaon area yesterday.

Home Minister Shivraj Patil has strongly condemned the blast, and has directed the state government to remain vigilant and ensure that peace is maintained.

He said that such incidents would not succeed in weakening the resolve of the government to deal strongly with divisive forces in Assam and other north eastern states.

The explosion occurred around 10.45 a.m. The bomb was hidden in a autorickshaw parked near the Marwari Maternity Hospital.

The intensity of the blast was so high that vehicles parked nearby were destroyed and the windowpanes of a three-storyed building located nearby were broken.

Meanwhile, at least two suspected ULFA militants were shot dead by the security forces.

On May 21, at least 13 people were injured in a blast.

On May 18, five persons were injured in a blast in Guwahati.

Earlier on May 14, two persons were killed and eight others injured by a bomb blast that followed ethnic clashes in eastern Assam the day before.
