Two bombs, suspected to have been planted by the outlawed ULFA, exploded at Gouripur market in Assam's Dhibri district on Wednesday though there were no casualties.

Dhubri's Deputy Commissioner Ganesh Kalita told PTI on phone that one bomb exploded inside an abandoned room in the third floor of a studio while the other went off inside the premises of a Hindi-speaking businessman at Gouripur.

The blasts occurred almost simultaneously at around 2pm.

There were no casualties as no people were around in the two spots when the blasts occurred, Kalita said. He did not rule out the involvement of the ULFA in the attacks.

The ULFA has of late been targeting market areas and Hindi-speaking people in Assam.
