HYDERABAD, June 14 (IANS): A militant of the outlawed National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) was Tuesday arrested at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport here, police said.
Intelligence Bureau (IB) officials arrested Subraksha Brahma alias Jagrit when he landed here from Kolkata. He was trying to leave for Dubai on a fake passport, police sources said.
Acting on a tip-off, IB sleuths picked up the militant soon after he arrived from Kolkata. After questioning him briefly at the airport, the officials took him to New Delhi for further interrogation.
Brahma was believed to be playing a key role in the activities of the NDFB. The rebel group fighting for an independent homeland for the Bodo tribe had agreed to a ceasefire in 2005, but it is blamed for continuing attacks on the security forces.
The outfit was also allegedly involved in the Oct 30, 2008, serial explosions in Assam that killed around 100 people and wounded 500 more.
