ULFA chief gets bail in TADA cases


It's an end of the wait. A local TADA court in Guwahati has granted bail to ULFA chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa on Wednesday. Rajkhowa is likley to be released from Guwahati Central Jail on Thursday where he has been languishing for the last one year. The court, however, has passed a slew of strictures for the ULFA chief to be followed. The court has asked Rajkhowa not to leave the country without prior permission. He was further asked not to misuse the bail granted to him.


The bail was imminent as the Assam government refused to raise any objection in view of its earlier decision to facilitate their release on bail.


The government decided not to oppose thier bail pleas to help them sit in talks as soon as possible.


Meanwhile,Rajkhowa's family members are camping in Guwahati to take him away to his home at Lakowa in Sivasagar. Formalities are being cleared to ensure his release on Thursday. Rajkhowa's bail is beleived to be crucial to hold talks between ULFA and the Government.
