The Centre Monday indicated that ULFA leader Anup Chetia’s is unlikely to be handed over to India by Bangladesh very soon as a court there was still hearing a case related to him. Home Minister P Chidambaram said the position related to Chetia, who has been in the custody of Bangladesh since 1997, remained unchanged. “I think there is no change in the position. He is now in Bangladesh, under some kind of custody. Therefore, as far as we are concerned, there is no change in the position,” he said when asked how soon the ULFA general secretary would be handed over to New Delhi by Dhaka. 43-year-old Chetia, who was arrested on December 21, 1997 in Dhaka for illegally entering Bangladesh and possessing two forged passports of that country, has completed his prison term. However, his application seeking political asylum in the neighbouring country was still being heard by a court in Dhaka, delaying the process of his handing over to India by Bangladesh.
