Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has assured firm action against militants from northeast India taking shelter in her country, Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar said Sunday.
Hasina wanted a list of militant camps set up in her country, Sarkar told IANS.
“However, she said some anti-Bangladesh elements have also taken refuge in Tripura. I categorically told her that we would take action against them if we get a list containing details,” he said here. Sarkar said: “We had offered a joint India-Bangladesh inspection to find out such elements a few years ago. Bangladesh then remained silent.”
The Border Security Force and other security officials said militants belonging to various rebel groups in the northeast region have set up about 90 camps in different parts of Bangladesh, specially Sylhet district and Chittagong Hill Tracts bordering Tripura, Mizoram and Meghalaya.
BSF inspector-general (Assam-Meghalaya frontier) Prithvi Raj Singh said over phone from Shillong that after the Bangladesh government launched an operation against the northeast militants last year, the terrorists were shifting base from Bangladesh to Myanmar.
“It is quite natural that the extremists look for new pastures to continue their future actions,” Singh added. He, however, hoped that Myanmar would be able to take action against the northeast militants taking shelter there.
