Aizawl: No militant group has so far
claimed responsibility for the abduction of six employees of
the Assam-based Anupam Bricks and Concrete Industries (ABCI)
from near Mizoram-Bangladesh border Mauzam hamlet on Sunday,
police said.

Though the group was yet to be identified, senior
police officials did not rule out the involvement of National
Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT).

"There is a possibility that the Tripura insurgent
outfit might be responsible and the involvement of the Chakma
group - Shanti Bahini - was also remotely possible," the
official said on condition of anonymity.

The six people were abducted by 20 to 25 people
wearing black suits and armed with Kalshnikov rifles after
forcibly taking Rs two lakh in cash.

Police suspected that the militants were hiding the
hostages inside the Bangladesh jungle where many insurgent
groups were having hideouts.
