Hundreds of passengers aboard Kamrup Express had a narrow escape when two blasts occurred on the railway track minutes before the train was about to pass.
The two powerful bomb blasts took place on the track within a duration of 10 minutes. The entire track was blown away as a result. "A major tragedy was averted", said railway officials.
The incident occurred in Karbi Anglong district, nearly 300 km from Assam's capital Guwahati. The train was on way to Dibrugarh. As the train slowed down after blasts, the militants fired at the train. This is the third successive attack on passenger trains in Assam this week.
On April 9, a trooper was killed and 18 others injured when terrorists had attacked the Barak Valley Express in North Cachar Hills district. The next day, two seurity personnel were killed and over a dozen injured when a goods train was targeted in the same district.
The role of Dima Halim Daogah of the Jewel Garlossa faction, also known as Black Widow group was found in the earlier attacks. Ahead of Lok Sabha polls, the separatist organisations have again intensified attacks.
