Assam blast

Two low-intensity bombs went off in the commercial area of Fancy Bazar in Guwahati on Saturday, in what is being seen as an act of the ULFA faction that is opposed to talks with the Assam government and the Centre. 

At least two people were injured, reports said. ANI news agency quoted a police official saying that the people were injured in the panic after the blasts in the crowded area. 

Guwahati Police Commissioner Mukesh Aggarwal told IANS that the anti-talk faction of ULFA may be behind the attack.

The Fancy Bazaar area houses several Hindi-speaking people. The bombs were reportedly kept in a garbage bin in the area.

Assam continues to see attacks and violence perpetrated by the separatist ULFA militants.

On Wednesday, suspected ULFA militants shot at and injured two Hindi-speaking individuals in Assam's Namrup town. 

Earlier this week, a delegation of 'pro-talk' ULFA leaders met Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi and senior officials of the Union Home Ministry and the Assam Government.
