Dhaka: Facing the heat in Bangladesh,
the commander-in-chief of the banned Indian separatist
organisation ULFA has appealed to the government to stop the
“crackdown” against the outfit.

"A party like the Awami League, which fought for
Bangladesh`s freedom, should try and understand our passion
for independence," Paresh Barua was quoted as saying by the
private bdnews24 news agency.

The separatist organisation, in an e-mail sent to the
Bangladeshi news agency, appealed to the government to halt
the "crackdown" against the outfit, saying the ruling Awami
League of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina should understand its
spirit for "independence".

Dhaka has denied that ULFA chief Arbabind Arabinda
Rajkhowa and deputy commander Raju Barua were detained in
Bangladesh even as Rajkhowa attributed his arrest to
"Bangladesh’s betrayal".

Home Minister Sahara Khatun dismissed reports of his
arrest from Bangladeshi territory, calling it "baseless".
