According to their families, Ashim Moran (18) and Mukut Moran (19) of Dirak village left home for Arunachal Pradesh in search of work a month ago. Since then, both of them have not been in touch with their families.
“He had gone for work in Kharsang (under Changlang district) a month ago. Now, he has shared photos dressed in camouflage outfits and brandishing arms on social media,” Ashim’s father Pradip Moran said.
“If he has joined ULFA-I, then I request its chief Paresh Baruah to send him back as he is a young boy and is not fit for joining the outfit,” Moran added.
While Ashim Moran is an HS 1st-year student of Dirak Higher Secondary School, his friend Mukut Moran is a school dropout.
However, till the filling of this report, no official statement was made by the police or any militant outfit regarding the matter.
