Bokajan: Panic gripped the family members of a businessman at Bokajan sub-division who was reportedly abducted by some unidentified miscreants from his office premises at the evening hours on Friday.
The businessman was identified as Chandan Kumar Singh.
As per reports, the businessman runs a chain of brick kilns at the Bokajan sub-division. It is also believed that the abductors might have kidnapped him when he was returning back home from a brickfield at Deopani along Golaghat-Karbi Anglong border.
It is to be noted that the incident came to light after Chandan's family received a ransom call from the unknown abductors demanding Rs 1 crore for his safe release.
Further, Chandan's Vitara Brezza car had remained untraced after the incident.
Meanwhile, Bokajan Police had launched a massive manhunt to trace Chandan, but, nothing significant has been ascertained so far.
It may further be mentioned that the abductors are reportedly using Chandan's mobile phone for negotiating his safe release.
