Missing Arunachal boy found in China
Chinese Army informs Indian Army
New Delhi, Jan. 23 (Delhi Crown): The 17-year-old boy Miran Taron who had gone missing six days ago has been found in China. He was reportedly in Chinese Army’s custody ever since he had gone missing.
Defence PRO (Tezpur) Lt. Col. Harshvardhan Pandey was quoted in a statement as saying – “The Chinese Army has communicated to us that they have found a missing boy from Arunachal Pradesh and the due procedure is being followed.”
Six days ago, Taron was roaming with his friend in an area where Tsangpo river enters India in Arunachal Pradesh. While he was said to have been ‘abducted’ by the Chinese Army, his friend managed to escape and reached his home.
BJP MP from Arunachal Tapir Gao had alleged that Miram Taron was “abducted” by the Chinese Army (PLA) from inside Indian territory.
“Chinese PLA has abducted Miram Taron, 17 years of Zido village yesterday 18th Jan 2022 from inside Indian territory, Lungta Jor area (China built 3-4 kms road inside India in 2018) under Siyungla area (Bishing village) of Upper Siang district, Arunachal Pradesh,” Gao had tweeted.
