Chetia brought back to Delhi

In a major move to rejuvenate the ULFA peace process the Centre has brought back Anup Chetia from Bangladesh on Wednesday.

A CBI has arrived in New Delhi along with Chetia and his close associate a day after they got remand of the top ULFA leader at a jail in Dhaka.

Immediately after landing at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, the duo were straightly taken to a guest house at Vasantpur in the capital where top ranked home and defence ministry officials are talking to him.

The move to boost the peace process assumed significance 6 months before the assembly poll. Pro talk ULFA leaders have been repeatedly demanding Chetia's extradition saying that it would be a booster for peace process.
