Bangladesh's caretaker government will not give shelter to separatist guerrillas from India's northeast, the local media reported Sunday.
The eastern frontiers with India will be tightened further by the caretaker government to stop the activities of (Indian) guerrillas from inside Bangladesh. They will not be allowed to set up camps on Bangladeshi soil," the Bengali daily Ittefaq quoted a foreign ministry official as saying.
According to it, the caretaker government will also make sure that Anup Chetia, secretary general of the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA), now serving a prison term in Bangladesh for illegally entering the country, is not allowed to spearhead a guerrilla from a Bangladeshi prison.
India has charged that the guerrillas have camps in Bangladesh but Dhaka has in the past rejected the allegations.
