Two officials of Regional Institute of Medical Science and Hospital (RIMSH), who were kidnapped by KCP militants for ransom on Tuesday last, reportedly escaped from their abductors late Thursday night, even as police picked them up and interrogated them Friday morning. Police said they were suspicious of the “escape drama” and would investigate into the matter. RIMSH employees who began an indefinite cease work today demanding release of the two officials - assistant engineer Ng Robindro and supervisor Y Surjit - called it off after hearing that the two had been freed. The militant outfit had earlier demanded a ransom of Rs 3 crore from the RIMSH authorities. Contrary to the statement by KCP (Ibungo Ngangom faction) through local newspapers that “both the abductees are under intense interrogation,” the two officials said they were not subjected to any interrogation while under custody of the group. “We are not abducted by them but they kept confined us after calling us to meet with them at Kangla Shangomshang village on the evening of that day,” Robindro said. Relating their escape story, Surjit said on Thursday evening one of the abductors had gone out with the engineer to collect food from the nearest village, when the two who were with him ran away on hearing some explosions in the nearby area. The other militant who returned with the engineer half an hour later, too ran away after he was informed that his other colleagues had left the place on hearing explosions, leaving the two officials behind. PTI adds: A report from Churachandpur district said Kuki militants yesterday released the three kidnapped officials of the Khadi and Village Industries Board (KVIB). The militants had abducted the officials on Wednesday from Mongjang village. The officials released were member secretary of the KVIB N Brojen, chief executive officer T Birgopal and beekeeping fieldman C Haokip. Correspondent
