Guwahati : An unknown terror group calling itself ‘The Islamic Security Force (Indian Mujahideen)’ Friday claimed responsibility for the serial bombings in Assam Thursday which left at least 77 people dead and more than 300 injured.
“We ISF-IM take the responsibility of yesterday’s blast. We warn all of Assam and India of situations like this in future. We thank all our holy members and partners. Ameen”, the group said in a text SMS sent to a local television channel in Guwahati.
The police have confirmed the existence of a terror outfit by this name. They said such a group was floated in 2000 in western Assam and was basically aimed at fighting Bodo militants.
In 2000, Bodo tribal militants had launched a violent campaign targetting Muslims.
