“Our Deputy Commissioners are looking into this matter. They are in touch with their counterparts (Arunachal Pradesh ) and hold talks from time to time.

“I believe we will be able to trace them,” Sarma told reporters at the Assam House after being asked about whether the state government held any discussion with the Arunachal Pradesh government over the missing 19 laborers.

Nineteen construction workers from Assam, engaged in a BRO road project along the India-China border, went missing from the work site in Huri under the Damin circle of Kurung Kumey district on July 5, and their whereabouts are not known yet.

The remote circle of Damin does not have a telephone or other network services to date, as per the DC Nighee Bengia.

The DC earlier said prevailing weather conditions and difficult terrain have been impeding the progress of the search and rescue teams tracing the 19 missing laborers.

The district administration has requisitioned the services of the Indian Air Force (IAF) helicopter.

Arunachal Pradesh shares a 1,080 km border with China.
