GUWAHATI, July 15: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has filed charge-sheet today against ULFA (I) C-in-C, Paresh Baruah and Chairman, Abhijit Asom.
According to sources, the charge-sheet was filed before a special NIA Court in Guwahati here today.
In line with this, the Agency has also prepared a “foolproof” case for the extradition of Mukul Hazarika, a UK-based doctor believed to be Avijeet Asom, chairman of the ULFA-I and a request for extradition will be forwarded to the British High Commission.
The NIA swung into action after a video showing Hazarika at a camp in Myanmar was aired by a local TV news channel (DY365) on September 30, 2015. Subsequently, the agency gathered footage and photographs of him at the rebel base camp in the neighbouring country, as well as statements from surrendered ULFA cadres.
More details awaited.
