The alleged ‘abduction’ of the 17-year-old Arunachal boy was first flagged by BJP MP from the frontier state – Tapir Gao.

“Tapir Gao is an MP of the BJP. He bravely articulated his concerns,” Congress MP Manish Tewari further said.

“BJP MP from Arunachal East Tapir Gao has been repeatedly raising issue of Chinese creeping occupation of Indian Territory. He is a very brave man,” Tewari added.

Meanwhile, the Indian Army has contacted the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China in regards to the ‘abducted’ Arunachal boy.

The Indian Army has sought assistance from the PLA to ‘locate’ the youth and “return him”.
