12-day police custody for NDFB chief Ranjan Daimary


The court of Kamrup Chief Judicial Magistrate on Sunday remanded Ranjan Daimary to 14 days police custody after the NDFB chief was produced before the court. Daimary was produced in court three dasy after he was handed over to BSF by the Bangladesh Rifles who picked up in Sherpur near Dhaka on April 17.


Ranjan Daimary alias D R Nabla, chief of the anti-talks faction of National Democratic Front of Bodoland and wanted in the 2008 serial bomb blasts in Assam, was on Saturday handed over to BSF by BDR. According to sources, Daimary, who was hiding in Bangladesh, was handed over by BDR near Dawki international border in Meghalaya in the wee hours. NDFB was originally formed under Daimary's leadership as Boro Security Force on 3rd October, 1986 and on 25th November, 1994, the outfit changed its name to NDFB.

THE GAME SEEMS MURKY: The handing over of ULFA-NDFB militants by Bangladesh to India, their ‘confession’ of triggering the Oct 30, 2008 serial blasts in Assam--- is this a political drama to hijack the reality? 1. How can outfits which used to plant bombs in bicycles and motor-bikes become so powerful in a few months as to mastermind blasts like in Lahore or Kabul? Where is the unseen angle of HUJI-ISI which emerged just after the blasts before the politicians and police gave a different colour? 2. Didn’t some quarters say that they have planned the blasts in retaliation of Bodo-Bangladeshi riots in Udalguri in the earlier part of 2008? 3. ULFA-NDFB denied involvement in the heineous crime. If I am not wrong, the NDFB had entered into a ceasefire with the government of India. Under such circumstances, what made Ranjan Daimari make its present felt to the Centre, as he claims now? 4. If we check the reports just after the blasts, a few men with doubtful citizenship were arrested in Morigaon. Where are they now? 5. If the 2008 clashes among the locals and Muslim migrants from East Bengal, why would NDFB hoist the flag of Pakistan in Udalguri? If the sole culprit is NDFB, they should have opted for the flag of China instead since their allegiance to the same racial origin. If there goes a saying, 'Something is wrong in the state of Denmark', we must say, everything is wrong in the state of Assam. All these questions will remain unanswered for the common but conscious people. In the entire tragic episode, the first casualty is the victims and their bereaved families. The second is the faith and trust of the citizens of a so called democracy.
