Posted by Ramesh Khati on August 19, 2009

Agartala, Aug 18 (PTI) Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar has asked the Centre to enter into an extradition treaty with Bangladesh to get hold of the insurgents hiding in the neighbouring country.

“I feel that the time is now ripe for entering into an extradition treaty with Bangladesh for which the Central government may like to take necessary steps,” Sarkar said, while addressing a conference on internal security in New Delhi yesterday.

Stressing that Bangladesh continues to be a safe haven for extremist elements active in the north-east, he said Tripura was being used as a corridor for their movement.

The state government has been sharing information on the existence of terrorist camps in Bangladesh with the Centre, he said.

Sarkar, also the Home Minister, has demanded increasing of the strength of the Border Security Force (BSF) for effective management of the 856-km long porous border with Bangladesh.
