UNLF leader arrested...maybe

The BBC reported on Wednesday that United National Liberation Front (UNLF) leader Rajkumar Meghen was arrested in Bangladesh and handed to India.  A day later, Manipur-based KanglaOnline quoted an Indian official as saying that the UNLF leader had not been extradited to India and that there had been no official confirmation of his arrest in Bangladesh.

UNLF is a Manipuri separatist group.

Update (18/10): UNLF has confirmed its leader's arrest, according to a Manipuri website, accusing the governments of Bangladesh and India of conspiring to conceal the arrest.
