Suspected rebels of the proscribed ULFA-I have kidnapped a tea garden manager from Sonari in Charaideo district.

The victim identified as Nomal Baruah was abducted from the Timonbahi tea estate.

Baruah’s family members disclosed that 4 heavily armed persons who claimed to be ULFA-I rebels abducted him. Besides the victim’s family member also appealed for Baruah’s safe release.

The latest incident of kidnapping comes 48 hours of a stone crushing unit’s manager being kidnapped from Eastern Assam’s Tinsukia district.

Earlier, late Monday night armed miscreants who also claimed to be ULFA-I rebels abducted Apurba Kakoty from Jagun in Tinsukia.
