GUWAHATI, Feb 6 � ULFA leaders including �captain� Antu Chaudang, �second lieutenant� Pradeep Chetia and another cadre Pranjit Saikia were today remanded to ten days� police custody by the Court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Kamrup. Assam Police had sought 14 days� custody.
The three was pushed back by Bangladeshi security forces after they were apprehended in the neighbouring country on Saturday, the day when the outfit�s leadership formally announced its decision to sit for talks on February 10 without any precondition.
The ULFA members were represented by advocate Bijon Mahajan and advocate Arshad Choudhury in the court.
The ULFA rebels face charges relating to Special Operation Unit police station case number 2/98 under Sec 384 of the IPC, besides Sec 10(13) of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
The court, however, directed the Special Operation Unit to facilitate Pranjit Saikia�s visit to the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital tomorrow to meet his wife who is undergoing treatment there.
It needs mention here that top ULFA leaders who have agreed to sit for talks including ULFA chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa, foreign secretary Sashadhar Choudhury, finance secretary Chitraban Hazarika and outfit�s deputy �commander-in-chief� Raju Baruah were also handed over to the BSF in a similar fashion about a year back.
