Dhaka, May 3 (DPA) New Delhi Sunday handed to Dhaka a list of suspected Indian terrorists believed to be hiding in Bangladesh, the Indian high commissioner here said.
Speaking to reporters after a meeting with Bangladeshi State Minister for Home Affairs Tanjim Ahmed Sohel Taj, India’s Pinak Ranjan Chakravarti said: “We have also requested the authorities to step up vigil over them especially during the ongoing polls yet to be completed in the eastern states of India.”

The envoy added that a number of issues, including extradition of prisoners, came up for discussion.

A secretary-level meeting between Bangladesh and India will take place to iron out ways of curbing regional terrorism once a new government assumes office in New Delhi, he added.
