KPLT frees Rabha and Baruah in Karbi Anglong


In a major sigh of relief, suspected KPLT militants have freed Chief Conservator of Forest Abhijit Rabha and Range Officer Ranjan Barua in Karbi Anglong district on Tuesday.


The duo were freed near a highway at Bokolia in the hills district on Monday midnight. Police rescued them in the wee hours before being taken to a hospital in Diphu for treatment. The abductors had reportedly demanded a ransom of one crore rupee as ransom. The duo were kidnapped on Sunday when they were returning from Sighasan Hills where they had gone with a 60-member delegation, including some Japanese botanists to conduct a forest department survey.
