ULFA leader, Indian scribe detained in Myanmar
New Delhi: A top ULFA leader and an Indian
journalist have been detained by authorities in Myanmar, Union
Home Secretary R K Singh said on sunday.
However, there was no information about the detention of
ULFA`s self-styled commander-in-chief Paresh Baruah as
reported in some sections of media, Singh said.
"We have information that Jivan Moran and an Indian
journalist were detained in Myanmar. But we have no
information about the detention of Paresh Baruah," he said.
Moran is the second-in-command of the hardline faction of
the ULFA led by Baruah. The detained journalist works for a
Guwahati-based daily newspaper and had travelled to Myanmar
apparently to interview Baruah.
After their detention, the Myanmarese authorities gave
the information to the Indian government, sources said.
The duo were reportedly detained in the eastern part of
Myanmar bordering China. It is immediately not known under
what circumstances they were detained.
Baruah reportedly has bases in Myanmar and visits China
