Five injured in ULFA blast

May 18, 2007 12:49 IST

At least five persons were on Friday injured in a powerful explosion triggered by the United Liberation Front of Asom near the Guwahati central jail in the busy Fancy Bazaar area of the city.

The police said that the bomb, hidden underneath a rickshaw, went off when a large number of people were buying essentials in the vegetable market.

Panic spread through the busy commercial hub as businessmen downed shutters and people ran for safety.

The Fancy Bazaar area is dominated by Hindi-speaking businessmen who have become a target of the banned outfit.

The police has cordoned off the area and started an investigation.
