Suspected Bru militants kidnap company executives

Anupam Bricks and Concrete Industries Limited's project manager Premlal Dhiman (48) and commercial manager Bajrang Lalbhurgi were kidnapped by ten masked men wearing army camouflage and armed with AK-47 assault rifles and pistols after overpowering poorly-armed six security guards of their camp near Meidum village.

The abductors decamped using the company's vehicle into the jungle, police said.
Though combing operation was launched by police, the militants were likely to have crossed the border and might be hiding in Assam or Tripura, they said adding that police of both the neighbouring states have been alerted.

The company employed security guards of the JC Private Security Limited and only two guards were armed, that also with unsophisticated arms.

No outfit has claimed responsibility so far and no ransom demands have come up yet, police added.
