A stone-crusher plant’s worker was reportedly kidnapped by armed miscreants from Upper Assam’s Tinsukia district on February 11th, 2020.
The incident took place while the victim Baikuntha Handique (26) was working at the crushing plant near to Tirap area along the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border when a group of masked men abducted him and fled from the spot.
The security forces have suspected it to be a handiwork of the outlawed United Liberation Front of Assam, Independent, ULFA-I, a designated terrorist organisation operating in Assam.
Meanwhile, a manhunt has been launched by the units of the Indian Army and Assam Police to trace the youth.
Baikuntha originally hails from Digboi and was employed by Jagun based business named Raju Khan.
