Two officials of a leading cellular provider in the North East, who were abducted on September 23, were on Saturday rescued by the police.
The duo was abducted from an area between Dimapur and Dillai police stations of Karbi Anglong district by unidentified militants while they were repairing a tower.
They were being constantly shifted from one area to another by the ultras and were on Saturday left abandoned in a house in a remote area.
Their health condition was good as the police managed to trace them out at around 2.30 pm after a long search operation.
While refusing to identify the militant group involved in the abduction, the police said extortion could be the motive behind the crime.
