GUWAHATI, Oct 12 � The deputy Commander-in-chief of the ULFA, Raju Baruah, has been granted bail in connection with a case relating to killing of a superintendent of police. His bail petitions in connection with three cases under the TADA will be heard tomorrow.
Raju Baruah was one of the accused in the case relating to the killing of IPS officer RK Singh, the then SP of Tinsukia district on May 16, 1996 and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has already filed the chargesheet of the case.
Raju Baruah had moved bail petition in the case, which is in the evidence stage and on October 7, the CBI objected to his application in the court of the ad hoc Sessions Judge here. However, today the CBI counsels filed another application saying that it was not against granting bail to Baruah, but at the same time, the Central agency suggested that strict conditions should be imposed on the ULFA leader while granting bail.
After hearing Raju Baruah�s counsel Bijon Mahajan, who was assisted by PK Das, N Das and A Choudhury, the court granted bail to the ULFA leader. But the court imposed some strict conditions to Baruah.
The court said that the ULFA leader would not be able to leave Assam without prior permission, he would have to report to the CBI within one month from the date of his release from jail, he would have to be present in the court on every day�s hearing of the case, he would have to inform the police about his movements, and would not indulge in any anti-national activities or furthering the cause of the ULFA. Raju Baruah has also been debarred from issuing any statement in favour of the ULFA.
