“My son was kept tied and blindfolded by the PLA while he was in their custody for over a week,” Opang Taron, father of Miram Taron, alleged.  

The father said: “He is still in shock. He was kicked and subjected to electric shocks.” 

Tapir Gao further said that incidents of Chinese PLA troopers abducting people from Arunachal Pradesh would continue unless the issue of border dispute with China is not resolved. 

“Until we settle the border issue, this type of action will keep happening, till then the PLA will keep doing the violence, give an electric shock, tomorrow they will also shoot,” Gao said.
