Gao added that the youth’s family went from pillar to post and even sought help from the Army and Government of India to bring him back.

He said that in September 2015, both Tapor Pullom and his associate went for harvest collection and hunting but while hunting near a pass, the Chinese PLA took Tapor Pullom with them.

He added that due to the efforts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi six abductees returned home in the last two years and requested the centre to deploy all agencies for his release.

Worth mentioning is that, the Chinese PLA had last month handed over 19-year-old Miram Taron to the Indian Army, a week after the teenager went missing from an area close to LAC in Arunachal Pradesh.
