It was a day they won't forget till their last breath. On this day in 2008 they lost reasons to smile, their life was turned into a burden of sorrow.

About 100 innocent people lost their lives and over 400 hundred were maimed for the rest of their lives in the serial blasts triggered by terrorists at three crowded places in Guwahati besides Kokrajhar, Barpeta Road and Bongaigaon in Assam.

The banned anti-talk faction of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) was involved in the incident and its chairman Chairman Ranjan Daimary was named as the prime accused. Daimary has been arrested but has not been convicted so far.
