Assam targeted: India's war against terrorism continues

Terrorism once again reared its head with vengeance on Indian soil on the very first day of Year 2009 as three blasts rocked Guwahati, the capital of Assam state, reminding us that a long battle lies ahead.

Suspected ULFA militants were responsible for the attacks, said the state police and the intelligence agencies. The Thursday blasts sent the country in a state of shock. Already India was reeling under the shock of Mumbai terrorist strike.

The blasts in Birubari, Bhutnath and Bhangagarh claimed five lives and sixty were injured. In October last year the state was last targeted when serial bomb blasts had killed 90 citizens.

The explosions were powerful. One bomb was planted in the dustbin. The blasts occurred near the Police Headquarters and in the market places. Incidentally, Union Home Minister is set to reach Guwahati.
