Shillong: Two days after ULFA's military chief Paresh Barua claimed that his son was kidnapped by unknown persons, the banned outfit on Saturday alleged that the abductors had released his son Arindam after 'torturing' him and 'interrogating him about his father'.

"Arindam was kidnapped from the main road. The faces of the abductors were covered with black cloths," ULFA's publicity secretary Arunudoy Dohotia said in a statement e-mailed to the media.

Arindam was tortured physically and the abductors even threatened to kill him. Though Arindam was made to call up his father, they could not establish the communication, the statement said.

"The teenager was asked about his father's assets, location, purported business etc and was threatened not to disclose about the abduction," Dohotia claimed.

The outfit condemned the incident, saying leaders "cannot be asked at gunpoint to sit across the negotiating table'.

Stating that such incidents did not 'forebode a good future', the ULFA claimed that it has identified some of the abductors and would disclose their identities soon.

The statement did not specify when Arindam was kidnapped or when he was released.

A few days back, the outfit had claimed that their two top leaders - 'captain' Antu Chawdang and 'second lieutenant' Pradeep Chetia - were picked up on December 13 in Bangladesh and their whereabouts were unknown since then.
