Guwahati: After 21 days, Dinesh Sharma, cashier of a petrol pump, who was abducted at gunpoint by suspected Ulfa(I) militant in Arunachal Pradesh’s Namsai district was released on Tuesday.
According to reports, Dinesh Sharma, an employee of the fuel outlet at Chongkham was released in the Medo area under the Wakro circle in Lohit district.
