Dawki (Meghalaya), May 1 (ANI):National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) chief Ranjan Daimary alias D R Nabla was handed over to Indian authorities by the Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) at Dawaki International border in Meghalaya.
Daimary is wanted in the 2008 Assam serial bomb blasts case and has been hiding in Bangaldesh since then.
India had raised the matter with Bangaldesh several times at various levels.
He is opposing the ongoing peace talks with the Union Government.
The Border Security Force (BSF), which took Daimary into custody from the BDR, later handed him to Assam Police.
The Assam Police has taken Daimary to Guwahati under tight security.
In October 1986, Daimary formed the Bodo Security Force, which was later re-named as the NDFB.
Though the NDFB, has entered into a ceasefire agreement with the Government in May 2005, but mostly flouted the ground rules of the agreemant.
After the 2008 blasr, the NDFB split into two factions - one supporting the ceasefire, led by B Sungthagra alias Dhirn Boro - and the other hardline faction, led by Daimary.
Daimary's faction claims that it was the real NDFB and sought to establish separate Bodoland.
Daimary was suspended from the outfit by the other faction subsequently.
Reportedly, the NDFB has close ties with the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) and in many cases carried out joint operations.
It also has relations with other outfits in the region like Achik National Volunteers Council (ANVC), Kamatapur Liberation Organisation (KLO) and National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang (NSCN-K). (ANI)
