Controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen, confined in a Rajasthan government guest house here, is likely to be handed over to the Centre on Sunday.

Nasreen, who was bundled out of Kolkata to Jaipur two days back before being brought to Delhi last night, is to be handed over to officials of the Union Home Ministry, Rajasthan government officials said here late tonight.

She was virtually hounded out of Kolkata in the wake of large scale violence and arson by Muslim outfits in the metropolis demanding her visa for staying in India be revoked.
