Chinese PLA Hands Over Missing Arunachal Boy Miram Taron To Indian Army
The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) on Thursday (27 January) handed over Miram Taron, a youth who went missing from India-China border in Arunachal Pradesh last week, to the Indian Army.
"The Chinese PLA handed over the young boy from Arunachal Pradesh Shri Miram Taron to Indian Army at WACHA-DAMAI interaction point in Arunachal Pradesh today," Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju said on Thursday (27 January).
Rijiju, who is the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Lok Sabha MP from Arunachal Pradesh, also thanked the Indian Army for pursuing the case meticulously with the PLA and securing the return of the boy.
On 19 January, Arunachal Pradesh's MP Tapir Gao had said that PLA abducted a 17-year-old boy from inside the Indian territory in state's Upper Siang district on 18 January.
Gao said that the incident took place near the place where Tsangpo river enters India in Arunachal Pradesh. Tsangpo is called as Siang in Arunachal Pradesh and Brahmaputra in Assam.
After the Indian Army received the information about Taron, it immediately contacted the PLA through established mechanism of hotline informing that an individual, who was collecting herbs and hunting, has lost his way and cannot be found.
The Army sought assistance from PLA to locate the individual on their side and return him as per established protocol.
