6 killed and 20 injured in a blast in Guwahati, Assam
May 26: For the fourth time in this month, the blasts have once again ripped the peace in Guwahati city. Six people were killed and 20 more injured when a powerful bomb exploded in Athgaon locality in the city. All the injured have been rushed to the local hospital and two of them are in critical conditions. Guwahati, which lies in north east India and is the capital of the state Assam, constitutes one of the niolence and conflict prone areas in the country.
The blast took place early this morning. The bomb that exploded was planted in an auto rickshaw. The magnitude of the blast, as was observed by the locals, was quite high. Police officials have confirmed the use of IED with LPG in the bomb. The police suspects ULFA behind this explosion, however, no militant organization has taken its responsibility.
The blast was so powerful that it shattered glass windows of nearby shops and also damaged concrete buildings. The pattern in which the act was carried is similar to earlier blasts and hence indicates the ULFA hand.
Athgaon is largely inhabited by non-Assamies and Hindi speaking people primarily from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. This is seen as an effort to harm Hindi speaking people in Assam. The militant outfit ULFA is constantly targeting Hindi speaking people and frequently attacking by setting bombs at different places.
This is the fourth instance of bomb blast in this month after the May 14 blast near Athgaon that took one life and injured five more. The last one took place in May 18, in which more than 20 people were injured.
ULFA rebels have so far killed more than 100 non-Assamies, since January this year. ULFA is trying to force Hindi speaking people to flee from the region.
