Blast in crowded market injures 8 in India

A blast in a crowded market in India's troubled northeast on Saturday wounded at least eight people, three of them in critical condition, police said.


Police officer Davies Marak blamed the outlawed Garo National Liberation Army, a militant group, for the explosion at a liquor shop in Williamnagar, a district headquarters of Meghalaya state.


Marak said the injured were hospitalised in East Garo Hills district, 235 kilometers (145 miles) west of Shillong, the state capital. An improvised explosive device was used in the attack, he said.


The GNLA is a group known for killing, kidnapping, extortion, bomb blast and attacks on security forces. It has been fighting for a separate Garo region within the state, according to a news agency. - Idrak
