    Prompt action by the army and railway staff led to the timely defusion of two
    powerful bombs kept by suspected National Democratic Front of Bodoland militants on a
    broad gauge rail bridge west of Kaithalkuchi railway station in Nalbari district of
    Assam last night. 
    
    Official sources today said a party of gangmen noticed suspicious objects attached to
    the bridge at about 2310 hours yesterday, whereupon they informed the police. 
    
    Immediately, the area was cordoned off by security forces and a bomb disposal team of
    21 Mountain Division from Rangiya was rushed to the place. The team defused two
    plastic jerrycans filled with 12 kilograms each of ammonal high power explosives and
    fitted with electronic detonators, the sources added.
