Sibsagar (Assam): Two powerful IEDs, suspected to have planted by ULFA's anti-talk faction, were on Friday recovered by security forces from under a bridge in Assam's Sibsagar district, police said.

Acting on a tip-off, army recovered two IEDs, weighing between 10 and 12 kg each, from under a bridge connecting Sonari and Namrup at Medalajan area, they said.

The IEDs were kept inside a pipe under the bridge. A bomb disposal squad rushed to the spot and defused the explosives.

The IEDs were suspected to have been planted by ULFA's anti-talk faction to make its presence felt after it rejected the unilateral ceasefire declared by the pro-talk faction to pave the way for peace talks to resolve the outstanding issues espoused by the outfit, police said.
