NEW DELHI, December 4 (agencies): A top ULFA functionary and an Indian journalist were arrested by the Myanmar army on Saturday. Home secretary RK Singh has confirmed about the arrest of the two people to the media.
The top ULFA functionary arrested is not Paresh Barua but the so called lt col Jibon Moran. He was the finance secretary of Ulfa. The journalist arrested by the Myanmar army Rajiv Bhattacharjee was working in newly started Guwahati newspaper called Seven Sisters Post.
Rajiv Bhattacharjee had recently posted on Facebook and Twitter that he was going to interview Ulfa leader Paresh Barua in November first week in the Myanmar jungles. Since then the Myanmar media is agog with news that Paresh Barua has been arrested.
It seems that journalist Rajiv Bhattacharjee was either arrested while he was on route to interview Paresh Barua or he was meeting Jibon Moran.
According to intelligence inputs Paresh Barua operates between Chengdu province in China and Kachin state in Myanmar.
