NDFB chief held in B'desh, handed over to India

A senior intelligence official said the Bangladesh Rifles handed over Daimary, who is also the chairman of NDFB, to the Border Security Force (BSF) at Dawki in Meghalaya on Friday night. The BSF then handed him over to the Assam Police.

Meghalaya Director-General of Police S B Kakati said: “We have heard about Daimary being handed over to the BSF, but I  have  not received any official information about it.”
 Daimary alias D R Nabla is wanted in India for several bombings, including the October 2008 serial blasts in Assam that claimed nearly 100 lives.
The NDFB—formed on October 3, 1986—is fighting for an independent homeland for the  tribal Bodo community in western Assam. The group had entered into a ceasefire with New Delhi in 2005.

In December 2008, the outfit witnessed a split after it expelled Daimary for his role in the serial explosions.

Daimary has been in Bangladesh for nearly two decades now, operating out of that country to carry out hit-and-run strikes in Assam.
Bangladesh  authorities had earlier handed over leaders of the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA), including its chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa, to India.
