Nov 11, 2015: In a major development, separatist United Liberation Front of Assam leader Anup Chetia, lodged in Dhaka jail for the past 17 years, was extradited to India on Wednesday according to reports. The ULFA leader along with two other associates was handed over to the Indian security agencies at Bangladesh border. Reports said that Chetia's extradition was only possible after Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi personally intervened and sorted out the matter with Bangladesh. The ULFA's founder general secretary was arrested in Bangladesh in 1997 and was under detention on completion of his seven-year jail term for cross-border intrusion, carrying fake passports and illegally keeping foreign currencies. Chetia was handed over to India at the personal intervention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and through active involvement of NSA Ajit Doval.

Meanwhile, Union Minister of state for Home Kiren Rijiju confirmed the handing over of Chetia by Bangladesh. 'This is indeed a big development and points to how improved relationship with Bangladesh is helping both neighbouring countries.' Rijiju said Chetia will be brought to Assam as the state agencies will interrogate him. 'Right now, I cannot say if he will be first taken to New Delhi or brought to Guwahati. However, he will come to Guwahati,' Rijiju added.
