Three other persons named as accused in the kidnap and ransom of two Jorhat-based traders on December 8, appeared before the Dimapur Police on December 14, five days after six others were earlier arrested on December 11.
However, police said the three- Vishika Achumi, Hetoi Awomi and Xusheto Zhimomi –who appeared before police on December 14, were released since the court had already granted them anticipatory bail.
According to a handout issued by Dimapur Police, the above named three were released after having given their statements to police even as efforts were on to identify and nab the remaining suspects who are absconding.
Police said it has now emerged that one of the accused persons identified Aloto, was reported to be the auditor general of Sumi Kiphimi Kukhagulu (SKK), and who was ascertained to be one of the main co-conspirators in the abduction. Police said the abducted victims were confined in Aloto’s house.
Aloto was also alleged to have assaulted the victims for not being able to pay the negotiated ransom amount. Alota is reported to be still at large.
Dimapur Police have so far recovered a total of Rs.1,65,000 after the recovery of Rs.20,000/- each from the house of two who were earlier arrested namely Kimiyeto and Khesheto.
