A TADA court in Guwahati is set to deliver its final judgment on ULFA chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa's bail petition on Wednesday.

The Assam government has already cleared its before the court where altogether 6 cases are pending before it. The court judgment was expected on Monday. But the ruling was reserved to Wednesday citing non receipt of more affidavit from the government. In yet another development Rajkhowa would be brought before the Kamrup Chief Judicial Magistrate in connection another bail petition he moved a few days ago.

Meanwhile, Rajkhowa's family members are camping in Guwahati to take him away after his release. A massive preparation is going on in full swing to receive Rajiv Rajkonwar popularly known as Arabinda Rajkhowa. Rajkhowa along with deputy commander in chief Raju Baruah was captured in Bangladesh and was handed over to India before being remanded to judicial custody. Rajkhowa will be the sixth one top ULFA leaders to be released on bail.
