A bomb tied to a bicycle exploded outside a supermarket in eastern India on Wednesday, killing at least two people and wounding 16 others, police said. The bomb went off in Alipurduar, about 650 kilometers northeast of Calcutta, Inspector General of Police Kundan Lal Tamta said. All of the injured were hospitalized, including three in critical condition, Tamta said. While there was no immediate claim of responsibility, the Kamatapur Liberation Organization, a regional rebel group, has been fighting since 2000 for a separate state.
