 TURA/SHILLONG: Garo Hills police are yet to make any breakthrough in the abduction of Dadenggre BDO P K Boro who was taken away by gun toting GNLA militants from his office chamber in Dadenggre on Monday afternoon.

Following the daring abduction, Garo Hills police have launched a massive rescue operation involving over 400 security personnel drawn from the state and Central paramilitary forces .

Focus of the operation is being centered along routes from Dadenggre to Tikrikilla, Anogre and Jengjal, Bajengdoba to Resubelpara, Mendal to Gabil and Rongrong towards Songsak in East Garo Hills district.

A worrying factor for security forces is the possibility of the kidnappers moving their captive towards the dense jungles of East Garo Hills and it is with this in mind that a big contingent of security personnel has been put in place all along the Jengjal to Bajengdoba zone.

“We believe the militants will try and get out of Dadenggre towards East Garo Hills and for this we have sealed the entire stretch of the border,” claim a police official involved in the ongoing flush out operations.

It remains to be seen whether or not the sealing was successful and in time before any attempt was made to cross over.

No quick-fix solution to militancy: Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma has, meanwhile, said there is no quick-fix solution to the militancy problem in the State.

Dr Sangma on Tuesday said the State Government is looking for a multi-pronged approach to root out militancy from the state.

The Chief Minister said, “Militancy is due to certain problems inherent to the state.”

Dr Sangma’s statement came in the wake of the growing militant activities in Garo Hills, where more than six people, including one civilian, had been killed and six people abducted in a span of two months.

He, however, refused to comment of the state government’s position on imposing ban on the GNLA.

UDP concern: The UDP has expressed concern over the deteriorating law and order situation in Garo Hills.”We are really concerned to see government official being abducted by the GNLA,” UDP president Dr Donkupar Roy told reporters here on Tuesday.

While stressing that the Government officials should feel safe while working in Garo Hills, Dr Roy said, “As it stands at present, there is a big question mark about the safety and security of the officials working in Garo Hills.”

Meanwhile, senior UDP leader from Garo Hills BG Momin said he felt that the Government should initiate a negotiation with the GNLA.
