Guwahati, Jul 9: The banned outfit in Assam, National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) on Friday, Jul 9, claimed the responsibility for the train blast in Assam. They also threatened to blow up more passenger trains and buses to show their protests.
An NDFB statement said that they asks and appeals to all the inhabitants of South East Himalayan Region not to undertake journey by train or other government vehicles as such type of incidents like October 2008 serial blasts will become the order of the day.
The statement from the rebels said that the attack was to express their objection against the tatty treatment meted out to their leader Ranjan Daimary, who is in the judicial custody at present.
"The safety and security to the people is only in words. Police and security forces got the information before and warned through the media about possibilities of blasts but failed to detect the location. NDFB claims responsibility for the serial blasts on railway tracks and the Garib Rath Express also fell in the trap in Kokrajhar district," they said.
