No talks with handcuffs on: Rajkhowa
Guwahati, Dec 5 (PTI) ULFA leader Arabinda Rajkhowa today said there can be no peace talks with the Centre with handcuffs.
"Bangladesh has betrayed us. We have not surrendered. We want peace but not in this way," Rajkhowa, who was brought to Kamrup CJM's court handcuffed, told reporters after he came out.
"We should have been wearing the garland of victory but we had to come with handcuffs on," he said.
Bomb scare on Jet Airways Dhaka flight
A Jet Airways flight from New Delhi to Dhaka was called off on Saturday after a man claiming to be outlawed ULFA leader Paresh Barua threatened to blow up the plane.
The flight, which was expected to take off around 1.30 pm, was aborted following the phone call to the airline's call centre, a senior airport official told IANS.
"All 115 passengers were immediately evacuated and the aircraft was put at the bay. The search operations inside the aircraft have begun," said the airport spokesperson.
Police are yet to trace the caller, added the official.
Delhi airport bomb scare turns out to be security drill (Roundup)
The passengers were seated and the plane was readying for takeoff when the panic button was pressed - there was a bomb on board! Security agencies swung into action and passengers were made to disembark but in the end, it turned out to be a mock drill.
The bomb scare at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport Saturday was staged to check the preparedness levels of the various security agencies, an official said.
The drill on board Jet Airways’ Delhi-Dhaka flight was conducted at the behest of the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security.
Around 1 p.m., a man claiming to be outlawed ULFA leader Paresh Barua called up Jet Airways threatening to blow up the plane, which had 106 passengers on board.
“All the passengers were asked to disembark from the flight and it was thoroughly checked,” said Rohit Katiyar, chief spokesman for the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) - the agency responsible for airport security - told IANS after the all-clear had been sounded.
“We were initially not aware whether it was a mock drill. We had deployed the emergency procedures as per the book,” said Katiyar.
“The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security later informed us that it was a mock drill. Such drills are routine and are done to ensure and enhance security measures at the airport and to deal with worse situations if they occur,” he added.
The preparedness and response of all stakeholders like the CISF, the Delhi Fire Service, the bomb disposal squad, the Delhi Police, the National Security Guard (NSG) and the Airports Authority of India was closely monitored during the two-hour drill.
I am sure, this is a cover up. Undercover war going on??
Govt may choke Baruah’s finances with Bangla help
The government apparently failed to make any headway informally with Rajkhowa before his surrender. Sources said Rajkhowa was given the choice of denouncing Ulfa’s demand for sovereignty and taking a safe passage or be arrested.
As widely speculated and even proposed by Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi, the option of granting a safe passage to Rajkhowa and letting him walk to the negotiating table is over with his arrest. And if at all, talks are initiated, it would be likely on the lines on the National Democratic Front of Bodoland.
