Meanwhile, there are reports of Bangladesh facing a legal hurdle in handing over Anup Chetia and two other ULFA leaders jailed in the country for the past 13 years. The government is yet to respond to a high court order on the trio’s asylum pleas, according to a report published in New Age newspaper. Successive governments have for over five years failed to respond to the high court order on the asylum pleas. The present government too is yet to reply to a high court notice issued Aug 23, 2003 on ULFA leader Anup Chetia’s application for asylum.
Earlier, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Hassan Mahmood told an Indian TV channel earlier this week that “an understanding” had been reached between New Delhi and the Sheikh Hasina government on handing over Chetia. However, the newspaper quoted Home Ministry sources as saying that they had received no clear orders. Anup Chetia and his two associates, Laxmi Prasad Goswami and Babul Sharma, have been in a Bangladeshi prison since 1996 after being convicted in four cases. They sought political asylum Aug 3, 1998, saying their lives would be endangered if they were sent back to India. Getting no response from the government, the trio renewed their appeals Feb 27, 2000, March 13, 2001, and Aug 14, 2003. The court also ordered the government to keep the trio in prison as a measure of safe or protective custody till their appeals for political asylum could be disposed of. There is no extradition treaty between Bangladesh and India.
