Blast before SP office in Bongaigaon

Suspected ULFA militants have hurled a hand grenade at the superintendent of police's office in Bongaigaon district on Monday. No casualty has been reported in the blast. The militants lobbed the grenade from the market side behind the office in the district headquarters of Bongaigaon town around 5.30 am when the office was closed. The grenade exploded in the office verandah. But the blast shattered the glass panes but there was no other damage to the building.

Meanwhile, ULFA and three other insurgent outfits in the North-East jointly called for boycott of the Independence Day celebrations and a "general strike" on August 15 from 1 am to 6 pm throughout the north eastern region. A statement calling the boycott and general strike by ULFA, Manipur Peoples' Liberation Front (MPLF), Kamatapur Liberation Organisation (KLO) and Tripura Peoples Democratic Front (TPDF) was forwarded by ULFA Chairman Arabindo Rajkhowa in an e-mail to media organisations in Guwahati.
