Fugitive soldier of Bangladesh Army arrested in Agartala

Investigators recovered some Indian identity documents from his possession

Police on Wednesday night arrested a fugitive soldier of the Bangladesh Army who was hiding in Agartala with fake credentials. They said they arrested the man from South Ramnagar locality where he rented a house.

Senior police officials and sleuths of intelligence agencies were interrogating him at West Agartala Police Station. Investigators recovered some Indian identity documents from his possession suggesting that he managed to procure them to ensure his safe stay here.

“In the papers his name is written as Raju Chouhdury, but he confessed his real name is Azam Khan. He was staying in Agartala for almost a year”, a security official told The Hindu.

The Bangladesh government would be approached through its Assistant High Commission following the arrest. Bangladesh had earlier reportedly alerted India about a fugitive soldier who was supposedly hiding in Northeast India.
