Separatists blow up rail track in north-east India

Suspected separatists have blown up a railroad track in India’s remote northeastern Assam state.

No one was hurt in Sunday's explosion in Assam, but the blast damaged the railway track near Deka Mising Gaon in northern Assam, said Bhaskar Mahanta, Assam’s inspector-general of police.

Security in the capital of New Delhi and all other state capitals has been increased for India’s Republic Day on Tuesday, with additional police and paramilitary soldiers drafted in to prevent militant attacks.
