Meghalaya: Assam Trader escapes from clutches of abductors


TURA: Three days after being kidnapped by a gang of criminals, a betel nut trader from Assam who was abducted on route to Rongara escaped from the clutches of his abductors.

The gang of kidnappers apparently abducted Noor Mohammed while on his way to trade for betel nut. He, along with the vehicle he was in, went missing near the village of Karukol.

After his apparent abduction, South Garo Hills (SGH) police began a frenetic search and rescue operation to ensure the safe release of the victim.

The victim, Mohammed, is safe and sound after his escape from the gang near Rongara. Our investigation into the matter is currently on,” said Superintendent of Police, SGH, Priyangshu Pandey.

Mohammed is a resident of the town of Mankachar in the South Salmara district of Assam and was last seen near the town of Baghmara before his abduction.
