SBI official remains untraced

Tura, June 17: Meghalaya police remained clueless about SBI official Arvind Kumar, who was abducted yesterday from Garobadha in the South West Garo Hills.

The search operation by the police is still on.

Three unidentified armed men had abducted Kumar while he was on his way to Ampati, where he is posted as branch manager.

“We suspect it to be a handiwork of militants. Our operation is on,” said West Garo hills SP Mukesh Singh.

Assistant general manager, Garo hills division, Nixon Joseph, who held a series of meetings with SBI officials today appealed to the abductors to release Kumar immediately.

“Unfortunate incidents like abduction will result in closure of branches because of shortage of officials,” said Joseph. Bakdil, an NGO run by Catholic missionaries, has also appealed for the immediate and unconditional release of Kumar.

SBI is contemplating to shut down banks in protest against the abduction.

Purno Sangma also condemned the kidnapping of the manager and asked if this can happen in the constituency of the chief minister then where can people of the state feel safe?
