 SHILLONG: In a setback to the Garo Hills-based GNLA, the outfit’s self-styled ‘foreign secretary’ was arrested by Bangladesh security forces on Saturday and was forwarded to a jail there.

According to an Intelligence official, the GNLA leader identified as Briansim Marak alias Bikdot Nikjang was arrested by the Bangladesh police based on the inputs from Meghalaya Police.

Nikjang had earlier acted as both political and publicity secretary of the GNLA.

Sources said that the militant leader was arrested from Madhupur area of Bangladesh and was subsequently sent to a jail there.

Earlier this year, GNLA chairman Champion Sangma was arrested by Bangladesh security forces from a hideout in the neighbouring country and was later handed over to the BSF.

Meanwhile, in another setback, police on Sunday arrested GNLA area commander of Ranikor, Pollop Sangma, and another cadre, Lakshmon Sangma, both hailing from Upper Puksora, following a raid.
