Extradition treaty with B'desh soon

India and Bangladesh are set to sign an extradition treaty and an agreement to liberalise the bilateral visa regime next month, even as New Delhi failed to commit itself to a timeframe to ratify its 38-year-old land boundary agreement with Dhaka and the new protocol added to it last year.

After a meeting with his Bangladesh counterpart M K Alamgir, Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Tuesday said the two countries would sign the extradition agreement and a Revised Travel Agreement for easing the visa restrictions during his visit to Dhaka in January 2013.
