Five tribals were kidnapped from Boalkhali, a remote tribal hamlet bordering Bangladesh in Dhalai district, by suspected insurgents of the banned National Liberation Front of Tripura.

Police today said the tribals were guarding their crops atop hills at Boalkhali, near the Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh, on Sunday night when a group of eight armed insurgents raided the place and kidnapped them at gun point.

The incident was reported to the police on Tuesday, Director-General of Police, Pranay Sahaya, said.

Tripura State Rifles and Border Security Force have launched a search in the area.
