NEW DELHI: A Delhi Court on Monday framed charges against a suspected militant of banned terror outfit United Liberation Front of Assam (Ulfa), arrested for allegedly threatening a Congress MP in 2008 to extort money from him to fund the outfit.

Paving the way to start the trial in the case, Additional Sessions Judge Narinder Kumar framed charges against Ranjan Bikas Borgohain alias Raman Baruah for various offences under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.

“The accused has been booked under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act and for being a member of a banned terror outfit under the anti-terror law and for raising funds for it,” the court said after Ranjan pleaded ‘not guilty’ and claimed trial.

Saying that a prima facie case could be made out against Ranjan, the court had said, “From the material available on record, it appears that the accused, Ranjan Bikash Borgohain, in July 2008 in order to commission of extortion put Anwar Hussain, MP, Lok Sabha, in fear of death, and thereby he made himself liable for an offence under Section 387 IPC.”
