WonÂ’t tolerate anti-India activities, says Bangla - Indian Express India and Bangladesh are likely to sign a Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) for transfer of sentenced prisoners by the end of December or early January next year. The first person to be handed over, once the MLAT for Transfer of Sentenced Prisoners is signed, will be jailed ULFA general secretary Anup Chetia. Chetia has been seeking political asylum in Bangladesh, but is wanted in India for various crimes, including extortion, kidnapping and murder. After the talks between Home Secretary R K Singh and his Bangladeshi counterpart Monzur Hossain, Singh said: â€œWe had talks on Anup Chetia. There are some legal issues involved. We are happy with the progress.â€ Hossain said there was zero tolerance for anti-India activities in Bangladesh, adding that the country would not tolerate anti-India activities on its soil and gave the assurance that fugitives like Chetia will be handed over to India â€œat the earliestâ€. Addressing a joint press conference at the end of the 12th India-Bangladesh Home Secretary-level talks, Hossain said Dhaka was keen to further improve security cooperation with New Delhi by exploring new areas for mutual benefit of the two neighbours. â€œAnti-India forces are not active in Bangladesh. We donâ€™t allow them to do anything like that. But sometimes things do happen, that is a different issue. But they will not be tolerated. We have zero tolerance for them.â€ Both the Home Secretaries reaffirmed their commitment not to allow the territory of either country to be used for any activity inimical to each otherâ€™s interests. Asked about the possibility of deportation of Chetia, languishing in a jail in Dhaka since 1997, Hossain said due to some legal issues, he had not been deported but hoped those issues would be resolved soon.
