Grenade blast at Meghalaya temple
Shillong: Suspected militants exploded a grenade at a temple in Meghalaya’s East Garo Hills district last midnight, but there was no casualty.
The Chinese-made grenade was hurled inside the Durga Temple at Warima market area of Williamnagar, the district headquarter town, police sources said.
"The intensity of the explosion was not strong. The floor has been damaged partially and the walls have black marks of the explosion," a police official said.
The Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA) is suspected
to be behind the attack.
Deputy commissioner Pravin Bakshi, at whose residence a crude bomb was hurled a day before, said, "The militants want to create a fear psychosis.
"There are reports that the GNLA militants had sneaked into the district headquarter town to carry out subversive activities," he said.
