GoI has no infomation on UNLF chief’s arrest: Pillai
Imphal, October 18: Contrary to the claim of the United National Liberation Front (UNLF) that its chairman RK Meghen @ Sana Yaima was flown to New Delhi by a special aircraft after his arrest in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Union Home Secretary GK Pillai clarified today in Imphal that the Government of India has no information about the arrest of the Manipur underground leader.
GK Pillai informed some media persons on the sideline of a seminar held at Hotel Classic in Imphal that he came to know about the report from media only. The report that the arrested Manipur rebel leader has been handed over to India is not true.
The Government of Bangladesh has not officially informed the Government of India about the arrest nor handed him over to India.The Union Home secretary said that New Delhi will try to contact the Bangladesh Government to confirm about the reported arrest of the UNLF leader, and “if it is true, then we will take him into our custody at the earliest.”
