Goalpara/Guwahati: Four bomb-like objects were recovered from train tracks between Dudhnoi and Krishnai stations in Lower Assam`s restive Goalpara district Friday morning.

Superintendent of Police Nitul Gogoi said local people noticed that wires were sticking out of jars kept on the tracks and informed the police.

Bomb experts have taken away the jars and would examine them, Gogoi said.

Northeast Frontier Railway Chief Public Relations Officer Subroto Lahiri said in Guwahati that train movement on the railway line was not affected by the recoveries.
