Gogoi said insurgents and anti-Indian forces operating from the soil of neighbouring Bangladesh had been a major impediment in containing terror. "As long as anti-India forces will get shelter in foreign soil, it will be difficult to prevent terror acts within the country, " the CM said.
"The investigation to the blasts has acquired a direction and it will take time to come to a conclusion. Forces within and outside the country joined hands to trigger the blasts," Gogoi said advocating tougher laws to deal with terrorism .
Gogoi said that Assam government was contemplating enacting certain laws to deal with terrorists so that those arrested couldn't get away easily.
