India and Bangladesh on Tuesday agreed to sign extradition treaty in January next year which is likely to facilitate the handing over of top ULFA leader Anup Chetia, presently lodged in a Bangladesh prison.
Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde met his Bangladesh counterpart Dr Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir where the two leaders agreed to finalise the extradition treaty, which is "under consideration by both governments".
Union Home Ministry officials confirmed the arrest of two terror suspects wanted by Bangladesh against whom a red corner notice was issued. One person, Sazzad Hossain Khan, was recently arrested from Amritsar and a process is under way to deport him to Dhaka, said officials. Shinde also stressed on taking action against leaders of the Indian Insurgent Groups (IIG) reportedly staying in Bangladesh.
"It was agreed that Revised Travel Agreement (RTA) as well as the extradition treaty will be finalized and signed in January, 2013, during the proposed visit of Indian Home Minister to Dhaka," said a joint statement issued after Shinde met his Bangladeshi counterpart.
