ULFA fugitives handed over to India; kept in Guwahati

Three days after they were picked up in Bangladesh, top ULFA leaders Chitraban Hazarika and Sasha Chaudhury have been handed over to Assam police after a series of formalities both in Delhi and Dhaka. The ULFA top guns who were detained at Gakulnagar area across Indo-Bangla border in Tripura were handed over to the BSF before being whisked away to Silchar en ropute to New Delhi. Later they were taken back to Guwahati for more formalities.

Meanwhile, the family members of both the topguns are eagerly waiting to see them since they have been been able to see them for the last many years. According to sources, the entire sudden development is stage managed as ULFA is rapidly losing its strength forcing a section of them to join the pro truce faction led by Mrinal Hazarika. But the pro truce faction has yet to react.
