Tripura CM: CIA supporting Christian Militancy in India's North-East

Wednesday, December 21, 2005
Times of India

Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar has accused the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of backing Pakistan's Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) to foment trouble in India's northeast.

"It's not only ISI but also CIA that is responsible for aiding and abetting rebels in the northeast," Sarkar said.

"ISI is still active in Bangladesh and continue to back rebels of the northeast with CIA's support," Sarkar was quoted as saying by Guwahati-based news portal .

"The main objective of this assistance is to destabilise the country," he said.

Sarkar said he had informed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh about this and also the existence of anti-India rebel camps in Bangladesh.

The Border Security Force and the central government have submitted a list of rebel camps in Bangladesh to Dhaka and urged it to dismantle them. But Bangladesh has denied the presence of such camps on its soil.
