Suspected militants of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) have abducted a general manager of National Hydroelectric Power Corporation (NHPC) at gunpoint on the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border.

The militants came in four motorcycles and took away Anil Kumar Agarwal before beating up his driver. The army, CRPF and Assam police are looking for the abductors.

“We have identified the abductors. The militant group behind the abduction is the NDFB (Sangbijit). The official was on his way to Tezpur from Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh (on Saturday, when the abduction took place). We have picked up three youths in connection with the case. Further investigation is on,” said Arabinda Kalita, superintendent of police, Sonitpur district.
