The banned ULFA today denied its involvement in the serial blasts that rocked Assam killing 56 people and injuring over 350 people.
"The ULFA is in no way involved in the blasts in Guwahati, Bongaigaon, Barpeta and Kokrajhar and we condemn the incidents," an e-mail statement signed by Aanjan Borthakur of the group's central publicity unit said.
The group also offered its deep condolences to the family members of those killed in the blasts and wished for the speedy recovery of the injured.
The ULFA urged the authorities to ensure proper treatment of the injured.
Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and government spokesman Subhas Das had earlier claimed the hand of "anti-national extremist elements" in the blasts while Kamrup (Metro) Deputy Commissioner Prateek Hajela claimed the HuJI was involved in the serial blasts.
