Rebel-politician nexus in NE yet to be established: NIA

Posted by Ramesh Khati on September 17, 2009

Shillong, Sept 16 (PTI) The anti-terror federal agency NIA, probing a case involving Assam-based militant outfit DHD(J), today said it was yet to come across “substantial evidence” on nexus of politicians with northeastern rebel groups.

“We are yet to come across substantial evidence on links of rebel groups, particularly the Dima Halam Daogah (Jewel faction), with politicians. We cannot proceed against a person on the face value of a charge,” a top NIA official said here.

The agency, probing the first ever case in the northeast east after its creation in the aftermath of the the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, has so far arrested 10 people–mostly arms dealers and linkmen–in connection with the case.

The accused have revealed supplying six to seven consignments of arms to the banned DHD(J) in Meghalaya, the official said.
