    Bangladesh to extradite ULFA leader to India

    Bangladesh has agreed to hand over United Liberation Front of Asom leader Anup Chetia to India, which will send back Nur Hossain, prime accused in a case of seven murders in Narayanganj.

    “Now, India wants to get the ULFA leader back. In response, we told them that we have no objection,” Bangladesh Home Affairs Secretary Mozammel Haque Khan said at a news conference after the 15th India-Bangladesh Home Secretary-level meeting, which concluded here on Wednesday. Union Home Secretary Anil Goswami led the 12-member Indian team at the meeting.

    After serving jail term, Chetia has sought political asylum, which was refused. Hossain fled to Kolkata after the brutal murders months ago.

    Under the Extradition Treaty, Bangladesh has placed requests for a number of Bangladeshi nationals imprisoned in India.India too has sent extradition requests to Bangladesh.
