Oct 24, 2013 11:31 IST

The extradition treaty between India and Bangladesh came into effect on 23 October 2013 with the handing over of the instruments of ratification. The treaty came into effect after Bangladesh Home Secretary C.Q.K. Mostaq Ahmad and Indian High Commissioner Pankaj Saran signed the documents in Dhaka. The treaty was signed between two nations on 28 January 2013. With this treaty in place, India will now be able to extradite ULFA leader Anup Chetia from Bangladesh.

Under the treaty the two countries will be able to exchange convicts and undertrials as required. The treaty provides for extradition of convicts sentenced to more than one year of imprisonment, but is not applicable to political prisoners and asylum seekers. Both countries can cancel the treaty at six month's notice. The treaty will allow India to extradite ULFA leader Anup Chetia, while it will allow Bangladesh to take back fugitive criminals from India like Sazzad Hossain and put them to trial.
