India to seek more info on insurgents from B'desh

An Indian delegation will seek cooperation from Bangladesh to collect more evidence on North East insurgents during the two-day home secretary level talks that begins in Bangladesh from Monday.

The delegation led by Home Secretary R K Singh will also have officers from the NIA, which arrested the insurgents, to gather more information and evidence under Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty. United National Liberation Front (UNLF) chairman R K Meghan was arrested along with 13 others on charges of waging war against the nation.

Apart from this, R K Singh is expected to take up with his Bangladeshi counterpart Manjur Hussain other key issues, including  border fencing, enhancing cooperation in combating terrorism, update on repatriation of ULFA leader Anup Chetia and smuggling of contraband.

It is learnt that the much awaited extradition treaty to be signed between the two nations will take some time as it is with the ministry of external affairs to give a final shape.
