Two people have been reported injured after two successive explosions occurred in a commercial area in Guwahati on Saturday.
The Times of India reported that the explosions occurred in Fancy Bazar at around 3 pm. The explosives were placed near a dustbin. Police are not sure if they were bomb blasts or grenade explosions.
The prime suspect is the Ulfa (Independent), which the police said is targeting the Hindi-speaking population of the state as the Fancy Bazar area has a high concentration of Hindi-speaking traders.
Earlier on December 1, Ulfa (I) militants opened fire at Hindi-speaking workers at a stone crushing plant at Namrup in Dibrugarh district in which two persons were injured.
The state is due for elections next year.
