NEW DELHI, Sept 7 - Following reports of abduction of five youths by People�s Liberation Army (PLA), China has denied any knowledge about the �missing Indians� stating that it does not recognise Arunachal Pradesh.

Quoting Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian, the State-owned Global Times has said that �China has never recognised Arunachal Pradesh, which is China�s South Tibet Region, and we have no details to release yet about the question on Indian Army sending a message to PLA about five missing Indians in the Region.�

On Sunday, Union Minister of State for Youth Welfare and Sports, Kiren Rijiju said in a tweet that Indian Army had passed on a message regarding the missing youths to PLA through the hotline. Response from PLA was awaited, Rijiju wrote.

Picking up of the youths by the PLA was first reported by former MP Ninong Erring. The missing boys belong to the Tagin tribe. While condemning the PLA for �abducting the �teenagers�, All Tagin Students � Union (ATSU) has accused the authorities of not paying attention to one of the most strategically important places in the country.

�Sacrifices and other assistance to the Indian Army by the Tagins during the 1962 war have never been acknowledged by the government and still today Tagin people live under the fear of Chinese aggression,� said the ATSU in a statement.

All Arunachal Pradesh Students� Union (AAPSU), an organisation that claims to represent the interest of indigenous people, held an emergency meeting and said the Nacho incident reflected �the failure of the central as well as the state governments in protecting life and ensuring security of our people inhabiting the border areas�.

Earlier today, an Arunachal Pradesh government spokesperson said they were closely monitoring the case. The district administration has been directed to assist all concerned agencies to trace the missing boys, the spokesperson added.
