The incident happened at around 10 pm, when a group of men barged into his residence and kidnapped him.
According to sources, “A group of 4 to 5 masked men armed with pistol and machete entered the house of the Sordar Shnong of Marmawsaw Manason Doloi, threatening the family members, and later abducted him.”
Giving details about the incident, Comfort Doloi, a resident of West Ri-Bhoi informed, “The shocking incident has kept residents of the village under fear since then.”
