Assam man returns home after 56 months in Bangladesh custody


Agartala, Sep 13 | After languishing for over four-and-a-half years in Bangladeshi jail, Assam youth Mukul Hazarika returned to India on Monday after a series of diplomatic and administrative efforts.

Hazarika, a resident of Hodapara village in western Assam’s Darrang district, returned on Monday after he was handed over to the Border Security Force (BSF) and Belonia police by the Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) through Tripura’s Belonia check-post on the India-Bangladesh border.

A rickshaw puller by profession and father of three children, Hazarika (35) inadvertently went to Bangladesh in February 2017, where he was arrested by security forces. A local court then sent him to imprisonment in Feni jail.

Hazarika’s father, Fuleshwar Hazarika, and Assam police personnel went to the Tripura border to receive the returnee on Tuesday.

“Bangladesh jail police tortured me in prison. They did not give me food regularly. After completing a three-year jail term, they did not allow me to come back to my home in Assam,” Hazarika told the media at the border.

Hazarika’s presence in Bangladesh first became known in 2019 after the officials of the Indian High Commission in Bangladesh informed the Assam government that he was lodged in Feni jail.

Senior bureaucrats and Darang District Superintendent of Police Sushanta Biswa Sarma played an active role in releasing and bringing back Hazarika to his home, Fuleshwar Hazarika told the media.

The weakness in US stocks is playing out globally with signs of higher inflation, which has spoiled investors’ appetite for the Indian market as well. Rising India VIX to 25.28 has led Indices to big intraday swings on both sides. Sectorally maximum sectors closed on the negative side as Nifty IT and Nifty Media sheds more than 3 percent each. While Nifty Financial Services ended on a positive side gaining 0.68 percent.

In nifty stocks, NTPC, HDFCLIFE, SBILIFE were the top gainers while ASIANPAINT, ADANIPORT and TECHM were the prime laggards. Coming to the OI Data, on the call side highest OI witnessed at 16200 followed by 16300 strike price while on the put side, the highest OI was at 15800 strike price. Technically, Nifty has formed three black crow patterns in the daily chart suggesting bearishness would remain intact. We expect a rise in volatility as well on monthly expiry day.

Riding against the trend may not be beneficial for short term traders. All major moving averages are lying above 16300 levels. Indicators such as MACD and RSI are still struggling to overcome the oversold zone in the daily time frame. Overall, Nifty is having support at 15800 mark while on the upside 16300 may act as an immediate resistance for monthly expiry. While Banknifty has support around 33500 while resistance is placed at 35200 on the daily chart.
