People experienced tension and panic as a mild blast sound was heard near the Army gate of Jorhat military station, and not too far away, gun firing was heard at Kakojan in Jorhat’s Teok.

The 3rd consecutive blast in 23 days,held 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. And also DGP GP Singh’s commitment to wipe out terrorism in the state has trigerred miscreants.

A curious explosion shook the surroundings of the Lichubari Army camp in Jorhat, Assam, on December 14. This event follows closely after a recent grenade blast in the Sivasagar district, Assam.

This recent blast follows two prior grenade explosions on November 22 and December 9. On November 22, a grenade detonated outside an Army camp in Dirak, Tinsukia district, causing no reported casualties. Another blast took place on December 9 at the 149 CRPF in Joysagar, Sivasagar district, with ULFA-I asserting responsibility for both events.

Preliminary information indicates that the explosion took place in the evening, creating widespread chaos in the nearby vicinity due to its loud sound. In a precautionary move, the main entrance of the Lichubari Army camp was immediately shut after the blast.

While senior police officials have reached the location, there are currently no indications of human casualties or injuries. 

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.
