He also added the issue is not limited to Miram Taron as the state has dense jungles in the border areas where intruding PLA troops abduct Indian when they go for hunting and collecting herbs.

He further added such incidents will keep happening until the boundary issue is resolved.

Taron along with his friend Johnny Yaying had gone missing from Bishing area of Tuting sub-division in Arunachal Pradesh‘s Upper Siang district close to the Indo-China international border on January 18.

17-year-old Miram Taron spent over a week in the captivity of the Chinese PLA after he went missing.

It may be mentioned that after Miram went missing, his father Opong Taron made a fervent appeal threatening to march into China to bring his son back home if the PLA do not release his abducted son soon and set a Republic Day deadline for his son’s return.

However, on January 27, the Chinese PLA handed over Miram Taron to the Indian Army at the Wacha Damai interaction point at Kibithu in Anjaw district of Arunachal Pradesh.

Miram Taron finally reunited with his family on January 31 after 14 days since he was captured by The Chinese PLA and released subsequently following the intervention of the Centre.
