ULFA Chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa's brother wants to take custody of his wife Kaveri Kachari and two children so that their 97-year-old mother Damayanti Rajkonwari could meet them.
Rajkhowa's elder brother Ajay Rajkonwar told reporters on Sunday that the ULFA Chairman's first question to him at the court yesterday was about their mother.
"After I told him that she was bed-ridden, he urged me to take his wife and two children to our mother so that she could see them for the first time," Rajkonwar said. "We are ready to take custody of Kaveri and the two children -- 13-year-old daughter and five-year old son -- and take them to our mother at Lakwa in Sibsagar," he added.
"If Kaveri wants to stay back for the outfit's organisational work, we have nothing to say," Rajkonwar said.
ULFA Deputy Commander-in-Chief Raju Barua's elder brother Jatin Kalita also told reporters that they were overwhelmed to see him after 23 years.
Kalita said he also wanted Raju to come home along with his wife Nirala Neog and their 10-month-old son to Chariya village in Nalbari where their 78-year-old mother Chajjya Kalita was eagerly waiting for them.
