Three persons were injured on Saturday in a bomb blast allegedly triggered by ULFA militants in Tinsukhia district of Assam even as the outfit held the Centre and state government responsible for rising incidents of violence in the state.
The bomb is suspected to have been planted by ULFA militants in the house of one Milan Deori in Rupaisiding-Tapoban-Tiniali area and three of his family were injured in the blast, Tinsukhia Deputy Commissioner Asfar Hazarika said over phone.
Meanwhile, the ULFA-appointed People's Consultative Group (PCG) has held the Centre and the state government responsible for the ongoing violence in the state.
Speaking after yesterday's blast in Machkhoya area of the city in which five people were killed, PCG member Lachit Bordoloi said the government was to be blamed for the current state of affairs although it could not be ascertained who exactly was behind the blast.
"At a time when the peace process is on, both the Centre and the state government have not shown any positive gesture to bring the ULFA to the negotiation table," he said.
"This is bound to send wrong signal to the outfit and create such an atmosphere" he added.
Bordoloi's views were shared by fellow PCG member Dilip Padgiri.
State DGP DN Dutta told reporters that all measures were being taken to prevent ultras from indulging in violence.
In a separate incident, panic prevailed in some areas of the city after an unclaimed object was discovered near the Kamrup (rural) SP office here.
On investigation, the object was found to be a tiffin box, Senior SP (Guwahati city) Nitul Gogoi told.
