New Delhi: BJP MP from Arunachal Pradesh on Wednesday said that the Indian teenager who was abducted from the northern state, was subjected to electric shocks by China's Peoples' Liberation Army (PLA).

As per the words of the BJP MP Tapir Gao, the teenager was tied and blindfolded while in the custody of China's PLA for more than a week.

He also urged the Centre to raise issues with the authorities concerned.

"I have received news that Miram Taron was beaten up and given electric shocks by the PLA. This is a serious matter. I urge the government to raise this issue with authorities concerned," Mr Gao told ANI.

Miram, 17, was allegedly abducted by the Chinese army on January 18 from Lungta Jor area near the Line of Actual Control when he went on a hunting trip with his friend Johny Yaying. Yaying managed to escape from the scene and report the matter to the authorities.

The Chinese army handed over Miram to the Indian Army on January 27 at the Wacha-Damai interaction point at Kibithu in Anjaw district.

Gao further added that this issue is not limited to Miram Taron. "We have dense jungles in border areas where intruding PLA troops abduct our people when they go hunting and collecting herbs. Such incidents will keep happening until we resolve the boundary," the BJP MP said.

"Until we settle the border issue, this type of action will keep happening, till then the PLA will keep doing the violence, give an electric shock, tomorrow they will also shoot. Therefore, there should be a flag meeting between the Indian Army and the Chinese PLA. A settlement should come that this kind of thing should not happen in the future. The Indian Government, ITBP, Army should look into this matter," he added.

On reports of three more labourers getting kidnapped in the Longding district, he said "this is a very disturbed area, in this, I have also contacted the deputy commissioner of police. Which underground organization has kidnapped the three labourers, it will have to be seen. One worker was released but two others are still captive. I request the government of India to tackle the issue to get them released."
