Taron informed that Miram was taken to Pasighat where doctors detected multiple fractures in his body after tests.

While he is finding no assistance for Miram’s treatment, Opang Taron said that doctors for the time being have advised the complete rest of two months for the boy.

It was also alleged that Miram was tortured in Chinese custody which resulted in him suffering several fractures and internal injuries.

Miram, a resident from Arunachal Pradesh‘s Upper Siang district, was picked up by China’s PLA while he was on a hunting trip with a friend.

It was alleged that Miram was abducted from within Indian territory which the PLA had intruded into.

He was handed over to the Indian Army after being in the custody of the PLA for over a week.
