Three PLA ultras held at Bangladesh border

K Anurag in Guwahati | February 04, 2009 15:58 IST

Border Security Force personnel have arrested three suspected militants of the People's Liberation Army, a banned Manipuri outfit, at the Indo-Bangladesh border.

A BSF source in Meghalaya informed that the PLA militants, including a woman cadre, were heading to their camps in Chittagong hills in Bangladesh. They were arrested from Beltoli area along the international border late on Tuesday night.

A CD containing details of the outfit's training schedule was recovered from the militants, besides other items.
The BSF source informed that the border sentinels have augmented the vigil along the porous stretches of India-Bangladesh border in all the north-eastern states to check cross border movement of militants.

Meghalaya shares a 443-km border with Bangladesh. A large part of the border, located in Khasi Hills and Garo Hills, has not been fenced yet and is frequently used by insurgents and illegal migrants.
