Indian officials on Tuesday were investigating a bomb that ripped through two cars of a passenger train in a remote area of eastern India, killing at least eight people and wounding about 60 others, officials and Indian media said. Suspicion for Monday's blast in West Bengal state quickly fell on two groups: communist rebels active in wide swaths of rural India or militants fighting for an independent homeland in the neighboring state of Assam, but officials said police had no concrete leads. A spokesman for Northeastern Railways, T. Rabha, told The Associated Press that the bomb had been planted in one of train's cars and the explosion occurred about 6:20 p.m. near the Belacoba station, about 550 kilometers (345 miles) north of Calcutta.
