Militants behind deadly bicycle bomb


JALPAIGURI, India: A bicycle bomb that killed five people when it exploded prematurely in eastern India was the work of militants fighting for a separate state in the Darjeeling tea district, police said on Friday. Detectives probing Thursday night’s blast in West Bengal said they believed the bomb exploded accidentally as a member of the Kamtapur Liberation Organization (KLO) cycled through the town of Jalpaiguri. A KLO militant named Lalmohon Debnath was among the five killed when the powerful device exploded on a bridge, near a school.
