Trust volunteers kidnapped

Miscreants are back in Kokrajhar district to monger trouble. Unidentified miscreants are believed to have kidnapped two volunteers of Lutheran World Service India Trust (LWSIT) in the district on Sunday.

Known as Sabaikhor Muchahary of Patgaon and Tapan Khan, the trio went missing Patgaon Kausi Bazar area under Serfanguri police station in Kokrajhar district since Saturday.

According to the trust management, the incident took place when the duo visited the area to take stock of the project under construction at Patgaon on Saturday. Since then he has been remaining traceless. Nobody has so far owned up the responsibility.

But the needle of suspicion points towards NDFB-S who have been unleashing terror in these areas. Search operation is going on in the entire area. But there is no clue as yet. The Patgaon committee of ABSU condemned the incident and demanded unconditional release of the two volunteers immediately on humanitarian ground.
