Shillong: Within a week of 19 ULFA members deserting the banned outfit, three more rebel leaders have left it and are currently in the safe custody of police, a top Assam Police official said Tuesday.

The three leaders, Praful Hazarika, Bhoben Dahatia and Rajiv Changmai were reportedly handed over by Bangladeshi security agencies to Indian security personnel at Dalu in Meghalaya's West Garo hills district yesterday.

The trio, known to be the core strike force of the 28th battalion hail from upper Assam and are being kept at an undisclosed location in lower Assam, the official said.

Last week, 19 ULFA leaders had deserted the outfit's camps in Bangladesh and are now in the custody of Indian security agencies.
