Ranjan Daimary, the founder of one of deadliest militant outfit in Northeastern state has reportedly been captured in Bangladesh and handed over to India.
A 50-year-old Daimary, who was hiding in Bangladesh for over decades, until his recent arrest from a hideout in Bangladesh, was handed over to Border Security Force at Dawki along the Indo-Bangla border in Meghalaya on late Friday night. The BSF later handed over the most wanted Bodo rebel leader to the Assam Police.
“We have heard about Daimary’s handing over, but we haven’t heard anything official yet,” Meghalaya Director General of Police, SB Kakati told Nagaland Post.
The BSF is yet to issue an official statement on Daimary’s arrest.
Daimary is accused of masterminding several blasts, including the infamous serial blast in Guwahati on October 2008 that killed over 100 people.
Early this year, the Interpol issued red corner notices for a range of crimes, including murder, extortion, and kidnapping.
The NDFB was originally formed on under Daimary’s leadership as Boro Security Force on October 3, 1986 and on November 25, 1994, the outfit rechristened its name to NDFB.
It had entered into a ceasefire agreement with the government on May 25, 2005. The group then split into two factions - one headed by Daimary, who stuck with the armed struggle for sovereign Bodoland and the other led by B Sungthagra, the moderate face of the NDFB. That apart, the Bodo militant outfit also established a working arrangement with the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM), currently on a peace talks with centre, and other smaller outfits in the region.
