Dhubri: A powerful improvised explosive device (IED) was found on a railway track at Moterjhar in Assam's Dhubri district by a joint force of the army and state police, defence sources said on Tuesday.
The 10 kg IED along with electrical wires was found last night and is suspected to have been planted by National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) to create panic among the people during the ongoing Durga Puja festivities, the sources said.
NDFB's involvement is being suspected as it is dominant in the area and had its raising day on Monday.
Two other IEDs were seized from a ferry boat in the district this morning.
The sources said BSF personnel during a routine check found the two explosives, weighing 1.5 kg each, hidden in an engine fitted boat travelling from Majerchar to Dhubri town.
One person was picked up for interrogation in this connection, they added.
