Officials Abducted in Tripura

A wave of abductions has been reported from India’s northeastern state of Tripura. During the past few days, separatist rebels have kidnapped two officers of the state’s public works department, four government contractors and two of their drivers. Officials say the rebels are targeting the state’s administration in the hill areas of the state. They are hoping that the administration in these areas collapses as a result. Police said armed separatists kidnapped Suranjan Das, an officer of the public works department in Khowai sub-division of Tripura’s West District, after stopping his vehicle at Mongkabari late on Monday. Two government contractors accompanying Mr Das and their driver were also kidnapped. On Sunday, another officer of the public works department was kidnapped in Kanchanpur in North Tripura district, along with two government contractors and their driver. In both cases, the officials had gone to inspect work on two bridges by the contractors. Full Story
