TURA, June 25 - A local businessman, identified as one Aktar Ali of Chokpot was rescued by police on Friday in South Garo Hills. He was kidnapped by suspected dacoits from his house on Thursday.

Ali was kidnapped by a group of five-six armed miscreants from Chokpot village in the district and was rescued from near Raja Rongat, about 15 kms from Chokpot after an encounter with the kidnappers.

The victim runs a small tyre repair and iron grill welding shop in Chokpot.

�Our sources said that a demand was made for about Rs 20 lakh but the kidnappers settled for a lesser sum,� said district police chief, Abraham T Sangma.

The family was supposed to make the ransom payment today giving the police an opportunity at nabbing the group. �Our men chased the group and fired on them. They, however, managed to escape,� added the SP.

Meanwhile, an overground worker of Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA) surrendered to the police recently. He used to help GNLA cadres with material supply and assist them in crossing the international border with Bangladesh.
