Dhaka, Dec 2 (ANI): Security forces have arrested United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa near Dhaka.

The arrest, which is said to have been carried out last week, comes after Bangladesh decided to crackdown on Indian insurgent groups operating on its soil.

Rajkhowa, whose real name is Rajib Rajkonwar, was among top four leaders who founded the separatist outfit way back in April 7, 1979.

Earlier on November 5, two other ULFA leaders Chitrabon Hazarika and Sasha Chowdhury, were arrested in Bangladesh and handed over to India. (ANI)
