Guwahati: A powerful Improvised Explosive
Device (IED), suspected to have been placed by members of

in Assam`s Udalguri district on Tuesday, police said.

The IED was found in the rail track at Bheragaon under
Tangla police station of the district.
The police have cordoned off the area and train

Daimary`s arrest as intelligence reports warn of possible
attack by the outfit.
