Haflong: A bomb was exploded by
suspected underground Hill Tiger Force (HTF) militants on a
railway bridge in Assam`s Dima Hasao district today suspending
movement of trains, official sources said.
However, no injury or casualty was reported.
The blast at around 5 pm damaged the metre gauge
railway tracks near Ditackchera railway station leading to the
suspension of all trains running between Lumding and Badarpur,
railway officials said.

The local insurgent outfit HTF has been recently
indulging in violence in the district blasting a bomb on the
railway tracks between Mahur and Phiding as well as burning
down several houses in Dimasa ethnic tribe villages last
month.
