Inspector General of Police (Law and Order) L.R. Bishnoi said suspected militants lobbed a grenade at a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) team, who were frisking people at a mobile check post there.

The Assam Police had earlier intensified security across the state following interception of a message sent by the top brass of the anti-talk faction of the United Liberation Front of Asom (Ulfa) to target security forces across the state.

Militants belonging to anti-talk faction of the Ulfa triggered an IED blast at Doomdooma town in Tinsukia town Thursday last, injuring 12 people including three policemen.

On Saturday, the outfit triggered a grenade blast at Paltan Bazar in Guwahati, killing one CRPF personnel and injuring 12 others.
