New Delhi, India (BBN)-Bangladesh has been extending full cooperation to India through pro-active action against Indian insurgent groups based in that country that resulted in uprooting of several top militant leaders, Lok Sabha was told on Tuesday.
Minister of State for Home Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary said during 2009-14, at least 17 top leaders of various Indian insurgent groups operating from Bangladesh have been arrested and eight others have surrendered, reports Press Trust of India.
