The Central Bureau of Investigation would soon take custody of Mathuram Brahma alias Mudoi, the prime accused in the several bombings and killings in Assam, a Meghalaya police official said Tuesday.
Mudoi, who also holds the rank of “sergeant major” was arrested by Meghalaya’s Special Operation Team (SOT) on Feb 10 from village Rangsana in state’s Ri-Bhoi district bordering Assam.
Apart, from Mudoi, the SOT arrested Lachit Boro alias Langana, the “commander” of the NDFB’s “eastern command” in Assam’s Sonitpur district and Nichiram Basumatary, Nakul Boro and Dharmeswar Brahma.
“Mudoi will be handed over to Assam police for interrogation with regard to several militant activities in Assam. The CBI will take custody from them (Assam Police),” Claudia A Lyngwa, the police chief of Ri-Bhoi district said.
Mudoi, who cross-over to India from Bangladesh via Meghalaya along with Boro, was wanted by various security agencies in the October 30, 2008, claimed more than 90 lives and left other 341 injured.
Meghalaya shares a 443-km border with Bangladesh, part of it porous, hilly and unfenced, and prone to frequent infiltration.
He is also wanted in the cold-blooded murder of 21 people in Assam’s Sonitpur district and the kidnapping of Vilas Warkare, an Indian Forest Service officer in Arunachal Pradesh last year.
Meanwhile, Meghalaya police got more three days police of Lachit Boro, who is involved in the killing of Raymond Philip Diengdoh, a Deputy Superintendent of Police in Meghalaya on Nov 2007.
“Boro is the prime accused in the killing of Raymond in a gun battle between the Meghalaya police and the Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC) and the NDFB,” Raymond was posthumously awarded India’s highest gallantry award, the Ashok Chakra, in 2008 village Paham Umdoh in Ri-Bhoi district bordering Assam.
“We have sought three-day police custody for Lachit Boro as we wanted to go deep into the nexus between the NDFB and outlawed HNLC in Meghalaya,” Lyngwa said.
The nabbed NDFB rebels, she said had also revealed the links maintain between the Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA), a rebel group led by a police officer turned rogue Champion R Sangma.
