At least 10 people, including two executives of an Assam-based private company, were abducted by tribal guerrillas in two separate incidents in Tripura and Mizoram, police said Wednesday. Three of the victims were released later.
Tripura’s Dhalai district police chief G.K. Rao told IANS: “Militants of the outlawed NLFT (National Liberation Front of Tripura) abducted eight tribal villagers Wednesday from Kalyan Singh village. The rebels later released three of the captives.”
“The tribal villagers were abducted while they were working in a field on a hill top. We suspect the militants took them to Bangladesh,” the police official said over phone.
Rao rushed to the spot, 165 km from here, and launched a combing operation. In a separate incident, two executives of an Assam-based private company were abducted Tuesday night by tribal guerrillas from north Mizoram, bordering Tripura and Assam.
“Armed rebels kidnapped project manager Premlal Dhiman, 48, and commercial manager Bajrang Lalbhurgi, 45, of Anupam Bricks and Concrete Industries Limited (ABCIL) from Meidum village in Kolasib district in Mizoram Tuesday night,” a Mizoram police spokesman told reporters in Aizawl.
“The ABCIL was engaged in road construction in Mizoram,” he said.
He said no ransom had yet been demanded for the release of the two executives and no rebel group had claimed responsibility for the incident.
North Tripura Superintendent of Police L. Darlong told IANS over phone that there was no clue of any militant from Mizoram, along with the captives, hiding in Tripura.
