The 27-year-old son of Assam’s BJP leader, Ratneswer Moran, who was kidnapped by militant group ULFA on 1 August, was released on Friday.

Kuldeep Moran was released at the Myanmar-Arunachal Pradesh border. The ULFA had released a shocking video of armed militants surrounding the boy, asking for a ransom of Rs 1 crore for his release. They later denied asking for any ransom.

On the morning of 24 August, ULFA commander-in-chief Poresh Boruah said Kuldeep had been kidnapped for his work as an informer with the Indian Army and Assam police and other security forces. He further said that the boy was in ULFA custody and “in a good health”.

It is not clear yet if any ransom had been paid for Kuldeep’s release.

In the ULFA’s 37-year-long history in the North East, it is possibly the first time such a video was released.
