Four persons were killed and 50 others injured in three separate blasts in Tinsukia district in Assam on Saturday.

Prasanta Jyoti Bhuyan, SP Tinsukia, said the first blast took place in the fish market in Tinsukia and another happened at the vegetable market 10 minutes later. The third blast was at Doomdooma town. “We suspect the blasts were the Ulfa’s work,” said Bhuyan.

FCI official feared dead

Meanwhile, a body, suspected to be of senior Food Corporation of India (FCI) official P.C. Ram, who was kidnapped by the Ulfa in April, was found in the Baksa district on Saturday. The body was dug up from a paddy field in Anandapathar area near Barama and brought to the Civil Hospital here.

Ram, an executive director in the FCI, was kidnapped with his driver Rabiram Basumatary by the Ulfa on April 17 in Guwahati’s Ulubari area when he was returning home from office.
