Itanagar: The Core Group for Tibetan Cause – India has strongly condemned and protested the abduction of 17-year-old boy from Arunachal Pradesh’s Zido village, Miram Taron, by the Chinese PLA soldiers on Tuesday (January 18) from inside Indian territory near Lungta Jor area under Bishing village of Upper Siang district in Arunachal Pradesh.
“The repeated acts of incursion by the Chinese PLA soldiers into Indian territory and abduction of its nationals is an attack on country’s territorial sovereignty and integrity,” the National Convener of Core Group for Tibetan Cause – India (CGTC-I), R K Khrimey said in a statement.
The people of Arunachal Pradesh have nothing to do with China and request the Government of India’s both the Ministries of External Affairs and Defence to take immediate action for the safe
release of Miram Taron from the captivity of PLA soldiers and further appropriate actions so as to ensure that such incidents do not happen in the near future, Khrimey, also the former Arunachal Pradesh MP, said.
“The Core Group for Tibetan Cause – India would like to stress that Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India and it shares border with Tibet, not with China in any way as it has been illegally occupying Tibet. Hence, all the concerned authorities and people must refer to the international boundary as Indo-Tibet border,” he said.
The teenager was allegedly abducted by the PLA soldiers from Lungta Jor area under Siyungla area (Bishing village) of Upper Siang district when he had gone hunting along with his friend, Johny Yaying (27), who escaped from the PLA and reported to the local authorities, Arunachal East MP Tapir Gao had said.
