Army seeks PLA help to locate ‘abducted’ Arunachal teen; Rahul Gadhi slams PM for ‘cowardly silence’
Guwahati: The India Army has sought the help of People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China to locate the 17 year old boy from Arunachal Pradesh who has been allegedly abducted.
The Army spokesperson here said, “On receipt of info, Indian Army immediately contacted PLA through hotline. Assistance from PLA has been sought to locate and return him as per protocol.”
As per sources, the ‘abducted’ youth has been identified as Miram Taron of Zido village in Arunachal Pradesh’s Upper Siang district.
Taron’s friend Johny Yaiying, who managed to escape, informed the authorities about the kidnapping by the PLA. Both are local hunters from the Zido village.
The incident took place near where the Brahmaputra River enters India in Arunachal Pradesh.
Meanwhile, taking a jibe at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the alleged kidnapping, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi lambasted the PM for not taking any action yet.
In a tweet he said, “With just few days to go to the Republic Day, an Indian has been abducted by China. We are with the family of Miram Taron and will not lose hope, will not give up. PM’s cowardly silence says that he doesn’t care.”
