At least 88 people were killed and 540 others were injured in a series of blasts triggered by the NDFB in Assam’s Guwahati, Kokrajhar, Bongaigaon and Barpeta districts on October 30, 2008.

Earlier in 2019, a special CBI court in Guwahati sentenced Ranjan Daimary to life imprisonment.

The CBI court had convicted 14 accused including Daimary in the case on January 28, 2019, under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

In 2020, Daimary was released from Guwahati Central Jail to take part in peace talks with the Centre.

He was granted interim bail by Gauhati High Court for four weeks as the Assam government did not oppose his bail plea in court.
