Jailed United Liberation Front of Assam general secretary Anup Chetia will be extradited to India from Bangladesh by December this year, Union Home Affairs joint secretary (north east), Shambhu Singh, told reporters here on Wednesday. Mr. Singh said the government’s efforts for Mr. Chetia’s extradition had yielded positive results after Dhaka signed an extradition treaty with New Delhi whereby both countries have agreed to deport wanted ‘criminals’ lodged in each other’s jails. Mr. Chetia has been in a Bangladesh cell since 1997 on charges of illegally entering the country using a forged passport and for possessing illegal foreign currency and illegal arms. After serving his seven years sentence awarded by a Bangladesh court till 2003, he was shifted to the Kashimpur prison from Rajshahi Central Jail in June.. —PTI
