[TamilNet, Tuesday, 10 February 2009, 22:22 GMT]
42 political activists of Myanmar landed in the Windfall Island of India’s Andaman Islands in 1998, allegedly lured by a promise of getting a base for them there. On arrival, 6 of them were killed and 36 arrested reportedly by an Indian intelligence officer LT. Col. Grewal. Two of the arrested have gone missing. A book titled ‘Rogue Agent’ authored by Nandita Haksar and published by Penguin India is released in Delhi, Wednesday, along with a protest demonstration demanding the release of the 34, languishing in Indian prison for 11 years and requesting the UNHCR to grant them refugee status, Burma Centre in Delhi said.

Nandita Haksar, the author of the book, is an international human rights lawyer.

“The people of Burma was also in negotiation with the Government of India through Lt Col V.J.S Grewal for a base in India in 1995 and after two years of negotiations they were invited to come to Landfall Island in Andaman. However on their arrival to Landfall Island on 10 Feb 1998, 36 of the Burmese freedom fighters were arrested while six were killed the same day. Out of the 36 arrested two have gone missing from Andaman Jail. The others were kept for 9 years in Port Blair and later transferred to Presidency Jail, Kolkata and continue to be imprisoned there”, a memorandum addressed to the Prime Minister of India, from civil groups supporting Aung San Suu Kyi and requesting the release of the prisoners said.
