Bangladesh hands over two top ULFA leaders

B`deshi security forces pushed back two top ULFA leaders through the Indo-Bangla border.

Shillong: Bangladeshi security forces Saturday pushed back two top ULFA leaders through the Indo-Bangla
border in Meghalaya where BSF took their custody, official
sources said.

ULFA `captain` Antu Chaudang and `second lieutenant`
Pradeep Chetia were pushed back through the Dawki border early
this morning, the sources said.

They were being taken to Guwahati by a team of Assam
Police.

In an e-mail to the media on December 18 last, ULFA
`publicity secretary` Arunudoy Dohotia had claimed that these
two leaders had been picked up by Indian intelligence agencies
in Bangladesh and since then the duo’s whereabouts were not
known.

Chaudang was the third top ULFA leader on the run after
`C-in-C` Paresh Barua and `commander` Jibon Moran.

Indian security agencies had said earlier that Chaudang
was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in December and
was undergoing treatment in Bangladesh.
