He said, "Hotline exchanged on Republic Day by Indian Army with Chinese PLA. PLA responded positively indicating handing over of our national and suggested a place of release. They are likely to intimate date and time soon. Delay attributed to bad weather conditions on their side."


Earlier, he had said the Indian Army shared identity, personal details and a picture of the missing youth with the Chinese side.

The youth, Miram Taron, who is a resident of Jido Village in the Upper Siang district, went missing on January 18, 2022, from Shiyung La in Bishing Area.

Taron’s friend Johny Yaiying, who managed to escape, informed the authorities about the kidnapping by the PLA, state MP Tapir Gao had said.

The MP said the incident took place near the place where Tsangpo river enters India in Arunachal Pradesh.

Tsangpo is called as Siang in Arunachal Pradesh and Brahmaputra in Assam.

In September 2020, the PLA had abducted five youths from Arunachal Pradesh’s Upper Subansiri district and released them after about a week.

The latest incident came at a time when the Indian army continues to be engaged in a stand-off with the PLA in eastern Ladakh since April 2020.

India shares a 3,400 km-long Line of Actual Control (LAC) with China from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh.
