Guwahati: NDFB chief Ranjan Daimary was
on Friday remanded in two more days of police custody in a
connection with the killing of Bodo Sahitya Sabha president
Bineshwar Brahma at Bashista in 2000.

case, Kamrup Chief Judicial Magistrate Robin Phukan, who
presided over a camp court in the Guwahati Central Jail,

a medical check-up was conducted on Daimary every 48 hours.
Daimary was arrested in Bangladesh and handed over to
Indian authorities on May one. He was produced the next day
before the CJM who remanded him in 12 days of police custody
which ended today.

security. The Special Branch had petitioned the state home
department for setting up a camp court to produce Daimary for

Sabda Rabha and Manas Sarania. Earlier lawyers had announced
that they would not provide legal assistance to Daimary in
protest against the October 30, 2008 serial blasts in Assam in

Usha Daimary and wife`s sister Nilima Brahma were also allowed
