Blast injures 10 in India’s Northeastern Assam state
Police, however, added that no militant group had so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
“It was a grenade blast probably targeted against security personnel conducting routine patrol in the area,” Deepak Kumar, police commissioner in the Assam capital Guwahati, told reporters.
The blast in a busy street in Guwahati occurred at about 8 p.m. (1430 GMT) and those injured included two police officers and eight civilians.
The grenade was lobbed by two people on a motorcycle, Kumar said.
Police said no group had claimed responsibility, but national public radio broadcaster All India Radio said a faction of the banned separatist group United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) had claimed responsibility for the attack.
