Bangladesh Industries Minister Dilip Barua today said the process of working out an Extradition Treaty between the neighbouring country and India has begun.

"The process for implementation (working out) of the treaty has started. This was agreed in the meeting between the
Prime Ministers of the two countries in New Delhi recently. It would see the light of the day in due time," Barua told a Meet the Press organised by Agartala Press Club here.

He said, "There is no place for terrorism or any kind of violence in Bangladesh. We would not allow any forces to
use the soil Bangladesh to act against India."

On Sunday, Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar in the meeting of Chief Ministers on internal security in New Delhi
alleged that insurgent camps still remained in Bangladesh.

Barua said his country wanted to improve bilateral relations with India in all areas, including trade, commerce
and industries.

He said the Enemy Property Act which later became Vested Property Act would be placed before Bangladesh
Parliament for scrapping. It was enacted when Bangladesh was a part of Pakistan to occupy the land and property of
non-Muslims.

Barua appealed to Indian investors to set up industries in his country as it has emerged as an investment
friendly destination after the new government assumed office.
