Serving Indian army JCO kidnapped from home in Thoubal

Imphal: A serving Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) of the Indian Army was kidnapped from his home in Manipur’s Thoubal district by anti-social elements on Friday, officials said.

They said the JCO, identified as Konsam Kheda Singh, a resident of Charangpat Mamang Leikai, was on leave when some people barged into his home at 9 am and bundled him in a vehicle and fled.

Though the cause of the kidnapping is not known, initial reports suggest that it was an extortion case as his family had received such threats in the past, the officials said.

On receiving information, a coordinated search operation has been launched by all security agencies to rescue the JCO.

Checking of all vehicles plying on National Highway 102 is currently in progress.

The cause of the abduction is not known and further details are awaited.
