11 Oct 2017

A government engineer has been abducted by suspected ULFA(I) militants from Bordumsa in Arunachal Pradesh's Changlang district, police said today.
Bedanta Kumar Sinha, a resident engineer of the National Highway Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (NHIDCL) was abducted from his house on Sunday evening, Inspector General of Police (Law and Order) Nabin Payeng said.
The engineer hails from Bihar and has been living in the house for the last one month. "We are yet to establish the identity of the group, but we suspect it could be the handiwork of ULFA (I). We have not received any information about whether any ransom was demanded," police said.
A search operation was on to trace the engineer, the IG said. The police have already informed the family members of the abducted engineer about the incident. (PTI)
