Guwahati, May 28 : A day-long shutdown is being observed in Guwahati today by 21 different organisations in protest against Saturday's blast by the banned ULFA that claimed seven lives and injured several others.

Tight security arrangements have been made in the wake of the shutdown call given by different outfits, including the Kamroop Chambers of Commerce and the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP).

Reports said that markets, shops, and business establishments remained closed, while street wore a deserted look, as private vehicles remained off the roads. Train services were said to be running as usual.

Earlier, Home Minister Shivraj Patil directed the State Government to remain vigilant and ensure that peace is maintained.

A powerful bomb explosion was set off by the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) in Guwahati's Athgaon area on Saturday morning.

The bomb was hidden in an 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.
