Five traders, including a minor one, from North Tripura district were abducted by unidentified gunmen when they were returning to the state in a lorry at Bhotalbari in Mizoram, police said in Agartala on Tuesday.

Gunmen chased Ajoy Roy (30), Talim Miah (50), Nukul Das (27), Sanku Dey (16) and Satya Nath (20), while they were returning from Tuipuibari to Kanmon by a lorry on Sunday.

The driver, however, managed to flee from the clutch of militants, they said.

A police team led by a senior police officer has left for Mizoram to seek the state police's help in rescuing the kidnapped traders, official sources said. Mizoram Armed Police (MAP) has also launched an operation to rescue them.
