Families say Chinese Army abducted 5 boys from Arunachal Pradesh who went hunting near the border

Prime News, Nation, (Ladakh), September 5:-The Chinese army has reportedly abducted five youths who had gone hunting in a forest in Upper Subansiri district on the India-China border in Arunachal Pradesh, amid escalating tensions along the border in eastern Ladakh.
According to local media reports, the five were abducted from the Sera 7 patrolling point in Under Nacho Circle. The five people have been identified as Dumtu Ebiya, Prasad Ringling, Ngaru Deri, Toch Singkom, and Tanu Bakar. All of them belong to the Tagin community. Their family members living at district headquarters Daporijo said some of their relatives had left for Nacho on Saturday morning to discuss the matter with the Indian Army.

News agency PTI reported that two others who were in the group managed to escape and informed the police. “I have sent the officer-in-charge of the Nacho police station to the area to verify the facts and directed him to report immediately. However, the report will be available only by Sunday morning,” Superintendent of Police Taru Gussar said.
Nacho is around 120 km from the district headquarters. The families urged the authorities to take steps to bring them back.
Taking a swipe at the Centre, Congress MLA Ninong Ering said the abduction took place while Defence Minister Rajanth Singh was meeting his Chinese counterpart in Russia to discuss the latest round of border confrontation.
“China’s PLA (People’s Liberation Army) has abducted 5 boys from Nacho, Upper Subansiri in Arunachal Pradesh. This has happened at a time when Rajanath Singh is meeting defence ministers of Russia & China. PLA’s action has sent a very wrong message,” the Pasighat West MLA tweeted.
