Bomb explosion in Guwahati: 12 injured

In yet another mysterious  explosion that ripped apart Guwahati on Tuesday 12 people sustained injury putting the security forces in a state of utter confusion and cluelessness.

The explosion took place at around 7.39 in the evening near the state zoo where two SSB soldiers were among the injured who have been undergoing treatment at the GMCH.

Hardly an hour after the explosion ULFA-I chief Paresh Baruah claimed to have exploded it which  the security forces are not reading with entirety.

Security forces have cordoned off the area and launched a massive manhunt to nab the culprits. But they are believed to have escaped.

The explosion in the busy area just near the capital suggests lapses in security arrangement where rebels managed to make their presence felt with an explosion.
