GOLAGHAT, Jan 8 � Eleven journalists of Karbi Anglong district were abducted yesterday allegedly by the KLNLF extremists who took them to a remote place where the extremists organised a press meet and put pressure on them to publish certain news in favour of them.
The extremists told the newsmen that soon an organisation in the banner of KPLT would be launched.
Meanwhile, paramilitary and police forces raided the area where an exchange of fire took place for about an hour. The extremists, however, managed to flee from the spot. The police then rescued the journalists and took them to the Barpather police station from where they were allowed to go to their respective residences.
