Mysterious explosion in Guwahati

An unclaimed explosion has again proved the futility of the heavy presence of security forces. That too just near the Chandmari police station. The explosion took place on Monday evening with a huge sound. There was no report of any casualty. Police claimed to have found some local explosive in the bomb. No one has so far been arrested. Police havenot denied ULFA's hand in it to make presence felt. Investigation is on.
