The seven activists of Manipur-based People's United Liberation Front (PULF-Azad), detained from Sonamura border of Tripura on July 15, have admitted that they were trained in Bangladesh by the Nagaland-based NSCN(I-M), another banned outfit. According to UNI report, Tripura Director General of Police (DGP) Pranay Sahaya said his Manipur counterpart Joy Kumar Singh confirmed the detainees' association with PULF-Azad and an investigation team from Manipur would come here soon to get them in transit remand. He said the arrested were identified as Md Abdur Rahman (25), a self-styled chief of the outfit, Md Firoz Khan alias Laskar (24), Md Abdul Kasim (39), Md Nazir Ahamed alias Tai Kunda (23), Md Sanowar Ali (18), Md Jamir (30) and Ms Lufi but during interrogation it was revealed that Lufi was unaware of their activities. The officer-in-charge of West Agartala police station Subrata Chakraborty said the militants admitted during interrogation that they had gone to Bangladesh in March this year and crossed over to Tripura enroute to Manipur. “They will be put through intensive interrogation by our special branch (intelligence wing) experts but it seems these people have contacts in Bangladesh and they have undergone training there,'' Mr Chakraborty said. A local court yesterday sent the arrested to jail for two days. Earlier, West Tripura Chief Judicial Magistrate issued them a conditional bail on July 16 but they were arrested again in Agartala last evening and some incriminating documents were recovered from their possession. ''The PULF is reportedly engaged in extortion activities and kidnapping in Manipur,'' a senior police official said, adding a team of Manipur police would come on Monday and interrogate the ultras and they might want to get them in transit remand.
