ULFA Leader Anup Chetia in CBI custody


New Delhi: Bangladesh has handed over leader of banned Assamese outfit United Liberation Front of Asom(ULFA) Anup Chetia to India, almost after 18 years. Now Anup is taken to the CBI custody. Later he interrogated by CBI.

The deportation was issued by Dhaka late on Tuesday after intervention at the highest level of the Indian government, concluding protracted deliberations in the matter.

Confirming the development, Home Ministry sources told that Chetia, who was arrested by the Dhaka authorities in 1997 and has already completed his sentence there, is likely to be brought to Delhi later on Wednesday by a CBI team.

Sources in the intelligence agencies say Chetia is likely to be questioned first by central agencies in Delhi. His custody may then be given to Assam police. Chetia, a founding member of ULFA and its general secretary, is wanted for murder, abductions and extortion in India.
