93 passengers were injured in the derailment caused by the explosion
A little-known militant outfit, the Adivasi People's Army, has claimed responsibility for Sunday's blast that derailed some coaches of the Guwahati-Puri Express near Rangiya in Lower Assam's Kamrup district.

Assam's Environment and Forest Minister Rockybul Hussain informed the Assembly on Monday that 93 persons were injured in the derailment caused by the blast which suspected militants triggered with an improvised explosive device.
