Assam's deadly serial blasts that claimed 77 lives last month continue to take traumatic toll, with a woman being admitted to a hospital for trauma treatment after losing her husband and daughter, while two others claiming a body as that of their dead son.
Sunita, who lost her husband, was hoping to take her daughter Moromi back home from hospital. But Moromi succumbed to her burn injuries after battling for life for four days.
Moromi (4) was returning home from her Junior Basic School at Dispur on October 30 when her father Sagar Sarma was struck down and she was injured by an explosion at Ganeshguri.
Sunita is now being treated for acute trauma at the psychiatry ward of the same hospital where her daughter died.
Meanwhile, at the Guahati Medical College and Hospital, a woman two days ago identified the charred remains of a young man as those of her son Santosh.
But another lady also claimed the body as that of her missing son.
Both have now to await the result of the DNA test, which the police subsequently ordered.
In the Uzan Bazar area in Guwahati, a bomb at the compound of the district deputy commissioner's office left a young woman, her child and mother-in-law shattered.
The wife of the victim, Rana, has a vacant look as she hugs her husband's shirt while her mother-in-law's tears have not dried up as yet.
Another mother in Barpeta, has not reconciled to her son Manik Saha's death in the blast Assam.
