Centre dismisses ULFA leader Paresh Barua`s arrest
Guwahati: Dismissing reports on the arrest of ULFA commander-in-chief Paresh Barua in Bangladesh, Union Home Secretary GK Pillai on Thursday said the government has no information about it.
"There is no information regarding Barua`s arrest," Pillai told a local news channel.
Senior intelligence and police officials also dismissed
the reports as a rumour.
"We have no information regarding Barua`s arrest and
reports appearing in a section of the media are only based on
rumours," intelligence sources told a news agency.
"It was highly unlikely that the ULFA leader would enter Bangladesh now after the arrest of the organisation`s chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa and other top leaders, as also the arrest of NDFB chief Ranjan Daimary," they said.
A section of media has reported that a person returning from a `business trip` to China has been held in Bangladesh and is suspected to be the ULFA commander-in-chief.
After the arrest of top ULFA leaders, Barua was reported
to have gone to China to buy arms and shuttled between ULFA
camps in Myanmar and Yunnan province of China.
