Shillong, Dec 30 (IANS) Three Muslim United Liberation Tigers of Assam (MULTA) rebels were arrested from the India-Bangladesh border in Meghalaya’s West Garo Hills district, a Border Security Force (BSF) official said Thursday. “The rebels were arrested Wednesday while they were trying to infiltrate into India from Bangladesh via Purakhasia area,” BSF Spokesman Ravi Gandhi said.
Meghalaya shares a 443-km border with Bangladesh, part of it porous, hilly and unfenced and prone to frequent infiltrations.
The rebels identified themselves as Abdul Rasid, Bansar Ali and Zaffar Ali.
An amount of Rs.3,130 and two sarees worth Rs.1,000 were recovered from their possession.
The rebels would be handed over to Meghalaya Police, the BSF said.
