ULFA maybe behind blasts, says Assam minister

October 30, 2008 14:04 IST

The Assam government on Thursday said the banned ULFA may have perpetrated the serial blasts in the state but it was too early to reach a conclusion.
"It is very early to make a conclusion but ULFA has a history of triggering serial blasts," Assam's health minister
Himanta Biswa Sarma told media-persons minutes after the explosions.
Sarma said the objective of the triggering the blasts in the crowded places was to claim more lives.
"Most of the bombs were planted in crowded places like arkets and office complexes. So it shows that the perpetrators wanted high casualty," he said.
The minister said one of the blasts took place close to the state capital complex in Ganeshguri.
