ULFA publicity secretary Mithinga Daimary is likely to be released on Thursday with a TADA court here accepting his bail bond on Wednesday, but the same could not be furnished for the group’s vice-chairman Pradip Gogoi.
Daimary, lodged in the Guwahati central jail here since 2003, was on Tuesday granted bail by the TADA Court in one case. His lawyer Bijon Mahajan said documents related to the bail bond was furnished to the jail authorities. “He is likely to be released tomorrow.”
The bail bond of Gogoi, however, could not be furnished on Wednesday and his lawyer Maini Gogoi held discussions with him in jail. She said it would take some time to process the bail bond as he had been granted bail in six cases by the TADA court and there were four more cases against him in the Chief Judicial Magistrate’s Court here.
It would be filed within the next few days, she said.
The ULFA vice-chairman was arrested in 1998 in Kolkata and Daimary by the Royal Bhutan Army during ‘Operation All Clear’ in 2003 and handed over to the Indian authorities.
TADA Judge Soneka Bora on Tuesday granted bail to Gogoi in three cases and to Daimary in one against a surety of Rs 1 lakh in each case. Gogoi was granted bail in three other cases by the TADA court on February 19.
