Delhi Admits Meghen In Their Custody, NIA Sends Official Notification To State

IMPHAL, Nov 30: Either bowing to the growing pressure or realizing it was a misadventure, Delhi today admitted that RK Meghen, Chairman of the UNLF, is in their custody, but it came coated under the Great Dhaka Conspiracy, with the Government of India claiming that he was picked up from Chhattauni village in Motihari district, Bihar by a team of the National Investigative Agency (NIA) agents.

According to a well placed source, the NIA has claimed that Meghen was arrested while trying to cross into India from Nepal at Chhattauni village in Bihar.

This has been communicated to the IG (Intelligence) of the State police and the SSP of Imphal West police.

The message was signed by the SP, NIA, Delhi Swayam Prakash and his case has been listed as 10/2010.

Meghen was later produced before the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate later in the day.

Confirming the latest development, the Additional SP of Imphal West police Ak Jhalajit said that a formal intimation of the arrest of RK Meghen has been received by the State Government from the NIA and accordingly he has instructed the OC of Imphal West police to convey the information of his arrest to the family members.

Late in the evening a formal intimation was conveyed to the family members of Meghen about the latest development.

The Additional SP of Imphal West further said that as of now, it is not very clear whether a team from Imphal would be dispatched to Bihar or to the NIA to bring back Meghen, and try him here.

The BBC correspondent Subhir Bhaumik had reported that the UNLF Chair- man was arrested from Dhaka by a joint team of RAW agents and their Bangladeshi counter parts on September 29 this year.

However Delhi and Dhaka had entered into a conspiracy of silence and had not come out with any official statement on the whereabouts of the rebel leader leading to speculations and protests here in Imphal.

Later, Tehelka after contacting their sources in Dhaka as well as in Delhi came out with a detailed account of the arrest of the rebel leader and had even claimed that Meghen was being kept in a safe house in Mehrauli, Delhi.

Tehelka’s report was neither denied nor confirmed by Delhi.

Earlier, the Communist Party of Bangladesh had intimated to their Indian comrades that Meghen was indeed arrested by a joint team of Indian and Bangladeshi intelligence agents and that he was flown to Delhi in an Army aircraft.

That Meghen has indeed been arrested was confirmed ‘˜officially’ when the UNLF announced that he has indeed been arrested at Dhaka by a team of India and Bangladeshi agents in Dhaka and was flown to Delhi.

To protest the deafening silence maintained by both Delhi and Dhaka over the arrest of Meghen, sit-in-protests have been held in the last few days demanding that the status of the rebel leader be made public. The MPP had also demanded that the Chief Minister should make an announcement on what was said during his recent meeting with the Prime Minister on the whereabouts of Meghen.  Sr SP of Imphal West police L Kailun who is away at Hyderabad could not be contacted as our calls to him were not attended to.
