IMPHAL, June 2 � Armed miscreants suspected to be militants have reportedly abducted drivers of four Manipur- bound goods trucks in Karbi Anglong at gun point for ransom, according to sources here.
The incident took place when drivers of four trucks loaded with juice, biscuits and other eatables parked their vehicles near a petrol pump in Karbi Anglong on May 27, the sources said.
Whereabouts of the abducted drivers, all from Manipur�s Thoubal district, are not known.
The All Manipur Road Transport and Motor Workers Union (AMRTMWU) in a meeting today decided to stop plying their vehicles along the Imphal-Dimapur (National Highway 2) and Imphal-Jiribam routes (National Highway 37) until the abducted drivers are released.
Family members of the abducted drivers have appealed for the safe release of the drivers.
