Two top rebels of the outlawed United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) were arrested in western part of Meghalaya bordering Bangladesh, an official said Friday.

Dergrah Saronia alias Ananda Das, one of the ULFA’s central committee member after he sneaked inside India from Bangladesh, arrested late last night from Chandaboi area in Meghalaya’s West Garo Hills district, Border Security Forces spokesman Ravi Gandhi said.

Based on Saronia’s revelation, Gandhi said BSF troopers arrested another top ULFA rebel Sarango Patowary of the ULFA pro-talk faction from Berangpara area not far away from Chandaboi.

“Patowary was in the border to received Saronia and we are interrogating to both of them,” the BSF Spokesman said.
Meghalaya shares a 443-km border with Bangladesh, part of which is porous, hilly and unfenced and prone to frequent infiltration.

During the preliminary questioning, Saronia revealed that he was staying in Bangladesh’s Sherpur district. Both Saronia and Saronia have been handed over to Meghalaya Police.
