SILCHAR, Oct 25, 2011(TNN) : Suspected militants triggered a bomb blast inside the office complex of NC Hills Autonomous Council in Haflong, the headquarters of the Dima Hasao district, early on Monday. A police officer said the explosive was kept under an empty bus, which was parked inside the office complex. The vehicle is owned by the council.

"The bomb went off at 4 am. The bus was damaged due to the impact of the explosion," added the officer. However, no one was injured in the incident. Soon after the incident, police and Army personnel rushed to the spot. A hunt is on to nab the miscreants.

On the other hand, miscreants set ablaze the office of the department of agriculture in Haflong at 11 pm on Sunday, partially damaging the office building. The fire was brought under control with the help of locals and fire tenders.

Sources said probes by CBI and NIA are underway in connection with the multi-crore scam in various government departments of Dima Hasao, including the department of agriculture.
