Following the blast at Guwahati on Wednesday evening where at least 12 people were injured, Nagaland deputy chief minister Y. Patton has asked the state Police force to on alert to thwart any untoward incidents.

Patton said police need to remain vigilant and take pre-emptive measures, particularly in public places, to avert any such subversive activities in the State. He also instructed intelligence agencies in the State to remain vigilant, a press note from the DY CM media cell stated.

Meanwhile, Patton condemned the grenade blast that took place on the busy RGB Road in Guwahati on Wednesday. Patton said while the overall law and order situation in the entire Northeast was peaceful, such cowardly acts by some disgruntled elements have spread panic and fear psychosis in the minds of the people.

He urged the law enforcement agencies to bring the perpetrators to book at the earliest and given befitting punishment to them as per relevant sections of the law. 

Praying for speedy recovery of those injured in the incident, Patton also expressed deepest condolences to the family members who lost their loved ones in the “dastardly and cowardly act”.
