Bangladesh government confirms Meghen’s arrest
Guwahati, October 23 : Bangladesh Government has officially informed India about the arrest of UNLF chief RK Meghen alias Sanayaima, said a report in Assam Tribune today quoting a high level source.
He is now in the custody of the security forces of Bangladesh and he is likely to be handed over to India soon, the report said.
Sustained pressure from the security forces of Bangladesh forced the militant groups of North East to wind up their camps in the neighbouring country and some militants are staying in villages.
The Rapid Action Battalion of Bangladesh has mounted an all out offensive against the militants taking shelter in that country and the militant groups like the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) have been forced to wind up all their camps in the Sherpur district. Sources said that some militants are now staying in villages in the Bakapura area.
The source said said that though the personnel of the Rapid Action Battalion have been taking action against the villagers who gave shelter to militants, it is almost impossible to trace out members of the militant groups of the region without pinpointed information.
