Grenade blast on Assam-Arunachal border
Guwahati: Suspected militants triggered a grenade blast at remote Bordumsa area in Tinsukia district of Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border on Thursday, police said.
No one was injured. The grenade was lobbed by two motor cycle-borne youth just outside the Bordumsa police outpost, about 600 km from here, police said.
Although police have not named any particular militant for the blast, locals have pointed fingers at the anti-talk faction of the Ulfa rebels led by Paresh Baruah alias Paresh Asom, who are very active in the area.
There have also been reports of massive extortion drive by the anti-talk faction of the Ulfa militants in the area.
