Kuldeep Moran, a person from Tinsukia district in upper Assam, who was abducted by the ULFA on August 1, on Monday appeared in a video clip issued by his abductors, in which he pleaded with his parents as well as Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal to secure his safe release before he was killed in a crossfire.
“I have been kidnapped by the ULFA. They have been taking me from one place to another on foot by blindfolding me almost every day. I appeal to my parents, as well as to chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal to get me released as early as possible. I don’t want to get killed in a crossfire ,” Moran said in the video clip that was mailed to several local TV news channels on Monday.
The video clip showed Kuldeep Moran in a kneeling position, with five heavily armed masked men standing guard, with all six facing the camera. Moran was wearing a green t-shirt. Moran’s father Ratneswar Moran, who is a vice-president of the Zilla Parishad, has some business activities in the Changlang district of Arunachal Pradesh that shares boundary with Tinsukia.
Assam Police director-general Mukesh Sahay said while Kuldeep Moran was abducted by the Paresh Barua faction of ULFA from Changlang district in Arunachal Pradesh on August 1, his family informed the police in Tinsukia district (in Assam) only on August 8. “It was only then that the Assam Police got the family register a case in Arunachal Pradesh,” DGP Sahay told The Indian Express.
