Silchar Sept. 30: A British national of Bangladeshi origin, who fled to Assamís Cachar district in early 2007 after slaying his wife, also a British national of Bangladeshi origin, in London in January 2006, will soon be extradited to England.
A top police official in Guwahati today said a team of policemen from Scotland Yard will reach Delhi in early October to take Abdul Sukkur alias Moibul Haque in their custody and fly him back to London after completing the formalities in Delhi.
Sukkur was brought to New Delhi under police vigil and sent to Tihar jail last month, police sources confirmed today. He has been under the scanner of the British police since January 2006 when he killed his wife Julie Begum, 30, mother of two children, in Londonís Brick Lane. Within three days, Sukkur fled London to Golapganj under Sylhet division in Bangladesh. He entered Kathigorah block in Cachar district in early 2007 when the British police came looking for him in Sylhet and started living there as Moibul Haque.
Police and intelligence sources said he befriended a few Assam government officials and managed to obtain key documents like a bank account of the Kathigorah branch of the SBI, a pan card and an Indian passport.
He took up different jobs in Jowai district in Meghalaya from 2007 and married an Indian national, Rashida Begum, in Kathigorah in 2011. She, however, died of sickness soon after, police sources in Cachar said.
Sukkurís two daughters Ahanha Khanam, now 13, and Anika, 9, stay with one of their uncles in Brick Lane in London after the murder of their mother and disappearance of their father. A gaon panchayat president in Kathigorah block, Chanbabu Singh, accused of helping Sukkur in obtaining citizenship documents, surrendered at Kathigorah police station yesterday.
