GUWAHATI: A powerful bomb exploded in Guwahati on Saturday injuring four. A faction of the ULFA has claimed responsibility.

Paresh Baruah of the United Liberation Front of Assam (Independent) called up local TV channels claiming that the blast was carried out by the outfit in protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill and NRC (National Register of Citizens) update exercise.

The blast ended an almost twoyear lull in violence in the state. Assam Director General of Police (DGP) Kuladhar Saikia said “an explosive device caused the blast” at around 11.45 am at a construction material dump site near a footpath in Pan Bazar area in which the four passersby, including a woman, were injured.
