'No anti-India insurgent groups in Bangladesh'

February 01, 2006 00:29 IST

Bangladesh Home Affairs Minister Lutfuzzaman Babar Tuesday claimedthere were no camps of anti-India insurgent groups in his country.

He was speaking to reporters while crossing over the Tinbigha enclaves in the border areas of Indo-Bangladesh falling in West Bengal's Coochbehar district.

"After receiving complaints from the Indian government, we had investigated all those but we could not find any camp in our country," Babar said.

Indian government has been time and again asking the Bangladesh government to dismantle the anti-India insurgent groups' camps on its soil. Top level leaders of many rebel groups were hiding in Bangladesh after the Bhutan government's "all clear" operation in 2003 evicted them.

The Bangladesh minister, however, refused to admitthat Indian rebels were in Bangladesh.

He said the Indian government gave them a list and map of 194 militant camps, which did not exist at all.
