ULFA militant held in Bangladesh
Dhaka: A militant of India`s banned United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) has been arrested in Bangladesh`s northern Mymensingh district, a media report said on Monday.
Ranjan Chowdhury alias Masud Ranjan Chowdhury, a `major` of the outfit, was taken into custody from Rupa Nursing Home in Sherpur where he was undergoing treatment, United News of Bangladesh (UNB) news agency said quoting police officials.
The nature of his illness was not known. The report added that he may be handed over to India.
According to a newspaper, his wife Sabitri Sangma confirmed over telephone from Latakura, a border village in Jhenigati, that Chowdhury had been arrested.
Official sources said Ranjan had married Sabitri, a Garo, and often used to enter Bangladesh through the border from Meghalaya.
ULFA operates in northeastern India`s Assam and Meghalaya and uses Bangladesh territory as its sanctuary.
Five ULFA leaders, including its chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa, were arrested and handed over to India earlier this year.
