In a setback to ULFA, Bangladeshi security agencies have launched a crackdown on their leaders there, forcing them to flee.

In another development, two leaders of the banned outfit have surrendered to the BSF.

Self-styled ULFA foreign secretary Sashadhar Choudhury and self-styled finance secretary Chitraban Hazarika surrendered at Gokulnagar along the Indo-Bangla border in Tripura, a BSF official told PTI.

The two were reportedly trying to enter India when they were spotted by the troops and made to surrender, he said.

Intelligence agencies said Bangladesh security agencies have raided some hideouts of the leaders of the outfit this week, prompting the cadres to flee.

ULFA chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa was said to be absconding as he slipped away hours before the raid in three different locations, according to intelligence inputs.

ULFA 'commander-in-chief’ Paresh Barua is currently camping somewhere in China, the inputs said, adding some of the cadres might have been detained by the Bangladesh security agencies.
