Terror ends in North East: Assam blasts mastermind Pranjal Deka killed!

Pranjal Deka, the alleged mastermind of the serial blasts in Guwahati that occurred on January 1, has been killed on Thursday, claimed the Assam police.

Police have claimed that they shot him dead near the State capital. Deka alias Bhambhal alias Biju, 20, had planned and set off the bomb blasts in Guwahati early this month.

He was associated with the dreaded 709 battalion of the United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA). Five persons Mansar Ali, Arifa Begum, R Salam, Sahil Sheikh and K Das had died while 50 had been injured in the bombings that had occurred at different places in Guwahati.

After the serial blasts, the police had launched a combing operation. The ULFA is also alleged to have been involved in the bomb blasts in Assam that had occurred two months ago. The police had recently arrested one, Sanjeeb Talukdar, for supplying the explosives to Deka.
