Four individuals were apprehended on Monday in a notable development in the investigation of the series of grenade explosions in Assam, specifically linked to the blast in Sivasagar district.

Based on preliminary details, the arrest of the four individuals is linked to their suspected involvement in the grenade explosion that occurred at 149 CRPF in Joysagar on December 9. The identified suspects include Rahul Mohan, Dibyajyoti Chetia, Mintu Chetia, and Rintu Nath.

Subsequently, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) was engaged to investigate the numerous blasts occurring throughout the state.

Notably, three consecutive blasts were held in 23 days, after the Chief Minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma, publicly claimed that the law and order situation in the state had improved and informed Union Home Minister Amit Shah. Also, DGP GP Singh’s commitment to wipe out terrorism in the state has triggered miscreants.

Reportedly, on November 22, a prior grenade explosion detonated outside an Army camp in Dirak, Tinsukia district, causing no reported casualties. 

A curious explosion shook the surroundings of the Lichubari Army camp in Jorhat, Assam, on December 14 right after 4 days of a recent grenade blast in the Sivasagar district, Assam.

It is noteworthy that the United Liberation Front of Asom-Independent (ULFA-I) has asserted accountability for the explosion, introducing an additional dimension to the evolving scenario. ULFA-I, a separatist militant group, has been associated with past instances of unrest in the area.

However, the four apprehended suspects were closely collaborating with the banned militant group, the United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA-I).
