SHILLONG, Jan 18: Efforts to rescue the seven abducted traders of North Garo Hills from Goalpara in Assam failed to click on Monday even as the police suspected the bunch of kidppers belongs to an assorted group of deserted militants of neutralized outfits operating in Garo Hills.

The Police commandoes launched a massive search operations in the suspected hideout on Sunday and Monday but the armed dacoits fled before the police team could reach, informed the SP of North Garo Hills district Ramesh Singh during a telephonic interview with The Sentinel. Without an iota of doubt that these abductors with obsession to kidp for ransom once belonged to the defused Garo militant groups like the AMEF, ANIA, UAEF, the Singh stated that intelligence inputs clearly suggest that those indulged in this act are those who thought to have been bereft of money after their superiors fell on police persistent pressure.

The concern is that these renegades of the multiple neutralized militant groups have arms and ammunitions with them. “They are regrouping like robbers and not for any social cause,” stated Singh while bemoaning that the simple traders are being targeted for easy money.

Assam has taken a strong note on the latest abductions of the Krishi based traders. With the area of occurrence not very far from the Assam border, a joint operation is on the anvil. However, it is also near the place where two innocent civilians were gunned down by the army in December last.
