Separatists behind deadly India bicycle bomb: Police
KOLKATA (AFP) - A bicycle bomb that killed five people in eastern India was carried out by militants fighting for a separate state in the famous Darjeeling tea district, police said on Friday.
Ten people were also injured when the bomb exploded late on Thursday in the town of Jalpaiguri in the state of West Bengal. Earlier reports put the number of dead at four but a fifth victim died later in hospital.
A senior police officer said the bomb, which went off near a school, bore many of the hallmarks of the Kamtapur Liberation Organisation.
"We suspect KLO militants are behind the explosion," West Bengal police inspector general Anuj Sharma told AFP.
