Indian militants flee Bangladesh camps: BSF
February 20, 2009 18:25 IST
Indian militants are fleeing from their camps in Bangladesh after the Sheikh Hasina [Images] regime came to power, Border Security Force sources said on Friday.
"Indian militants in Bangladesh are aware of the changing scenario after the change of regime there. It may be that the militants have made up their minds and taking all these actions," BSF Inspector General (Assam and Meghalaya frontier) Prithvi Raj said.
His statement comes in the backdrop of the arrest of nine militants along the Indo-Bangla border in Meghalaya and the surrender of 118 separatists who reportedly fled their Bangladesh camps in Tripura in the past few days.
During interrogation, some arrested Pepole's Liberation Army cadres said the militants in Bangladesh were shifting their camps from the Chittagong hill tracts to Myanmar.
"Apparently there is an indication that there is a change in attitude of the Bangladesh government. But the change is yet to be reflected in hard action against the militants. We would be happy if pressure is mounted on the militants," the BSF IG said.
