GUWAHATI: Assam was rocked by four blasts on Monday in which seven people were killed and over sixty injured.



The first blast occurred in Karbi Anglong, the second blast took place in Maligaon in Guwahati at around 2:00pm(local time), sparking a fire that set ablaze two cars and 20 motorcycles, the third blast took place in
Dhekiajuli, the fourth blast occurred at Mankachar area in Dhubri district along Indo-Bangladesh border.

Atleast seven people were killed and 61 others injured in two bomb blasts triggered by suspected ULFA militants in Maligaon area and Dhekiajuli on the eve of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit to Assam.

Assam DGP J M Srivastav said seven people were killed and 56 injured when a powerful bomb blast went off in Maligaon at around 2:00pm(local time), sparking a fire that set ablaze two cars and 20 motorcycles and spread to a three-storey building housing the area police station.

Just hours later, five people were reportedly injured in the Dhekiajuli blast. According to reports, the bomb was planted in a cycle.

"This is the handiwork of ULFA boys ahead of the outfit's 'Raising Day'," he said, adding the militants used hi-tech explosives.

While six were killed on the blast site, one succumbed to injuries after jumping from an adjacent building which had caught fire.

The DGP said PM Manmohan Singh will go ahead with his visit to the state on Tuesday during which he will address poll meetings in Dispur and Dibrugarh. "We have taken all precautions."

"The PM's programme remains unchanged," PMO sources said in New Delhi.
