Three border fencing workers of Tripura kidnapped by NLFT released

Three border fencing workers who were kidnapped by suspected National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) cadres have been released on Thursday.

The three workers are Subhash Bhowmik (48), Subal Debnath (37) and Gana Mohan Tripura (37). They were abducted on December 7 from Malda Kumar Para and Hariamoni Para in Ambassa sub division of Dhalai district.

The location is nearly 100 metres away from the Indo-Bangla international border.


“They (fencing workers) were taken to Bangladesh. Tremendous pressure from Bangladesh security forces compelled militants to release the workers,” Director General Police VS Yadav told reporters.
