Tripura doctor abducted, escapes

By The Assam Tribune

Imphal, July 21 (IANS): A doctor from Tripura was abducted by terrorists in Manipur and taken to a jungle but managed to escape some hours later, a Manipur police spokesperson said today.

Kunal Chakraborty was kidnapped by unidentified armed guerrillas early Tuesday at Molnom, 145 km from here, and taken to a nearby jungle. He managed to escape late Tuesday.

"Armed militants abducted Dr Kunal Chakraborty when a group of RIMS (Regional Institute of Medical Science in Imphal) students led by him were returning to Imphal from a rural health centre at Saikot in Churachandpur district in southern Manipur," a police official said.

"Chakraborty managed to escape from the clutches of the rebels when they were otherwise busy," the official said.

Chakraborty, a doctor of Gobinda Ballav Pant Medical College and Hospital in Agartala, joined RIMS some months ago for a postgraduate degree course.

Manipur Police and Assam Rifles troopers have jointly launched a combing operation to nab the extremists.
