By Our Staff Reporter

Guwahati, Nov 23: A special CBI court on Monday sent ULFA general secretary Anup Chetia to 14 days judicial custody.

"As the five days remand of the CBI expired today, the central agency produced Chetia in the court today (Monday). The CBI did not seek further custody of Chetia and so the court sent him to 14 days judicial custody," Chetia's advocate Bijan Mahajan said.

"He would be lodged in Guwahati Central Jail and the court has also asked the jail authorities to arrange good food and medicines for Chetia during the custody," said Mahajan.

Mahajan added that they would move the court soon for the release of Chetia.

Upon his arrival in India on November 11, the CBI arrested him in connection with a murder case in 1988 in Assam's Golaghat district. One of the four founders of ULFA, Chetia is expected to join the ULFA faction which is in peace talks with the Central government since 2010.

Meanwhile, two other ULFA cadres - Babul Goswami and Lakhi Goswami - who were deported with Chetia surfaced at a dhaba in Sopur. They were on their way home after being let off by the CBI. They told reporters that they would participate in the ongoing peace process.
