Vinay Kumar

NEW DELHI: A Union Home Ministry team, consisting of experts from the security and intelligence wings, will visit Assam, where serial bomb blasts occured on Thursday.

An expert team of the National Security Guards has already left for Guwahati to analyse the explosives used in the blasts and to look for clues.

“There could be links among various terrorist groups which are active in the northeast. But it is very difficult to say anything at this stage,” Home Secretary Madhukar Gupta told journalists after a high-level meeting held here to review the security situation in Assam.

It was presided over by Home Minister Shivraj Patil. During the 50-minute meeting, Mr. Patil spoke to Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on the phone twice.

Mr. Gupta said the State government was directed to strengthen security in the affected and vulnerable areas, and to make its own inquiries.
