NDFB chairman gets bail in Bhimjuli massacre case

Biswanath Chariali (Assam): A local court here on Tuesday granted bail to NDFB chairman Ranjan Daimary in connection with the 2009 Bhimajuli massacre case.

The Biswanath Chariali sub-division court granted Daimary bail with the government pleader not objecting to the plea for it.

Daimary will, however, continue to be behind bars because he has several other cases pending against him in various courts of the state.

The case was registered against Daimary in connection with the massacre of 12 people, including women and children, by the NDFB led by him at Bhimajuli in Sonitpur district along the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border in October 2009.

The government has recently not been objecting to jailed ULFA and NDFB top leaders' bail pleas to pave way for peace talks with the outfits.
