Itanagar, Jun 27 (UNI) The kidnapped son of former Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Gegong Apang and his music teacher were released unharmed last night, Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu said today.

Getem and his teacher Narendra Rai were released near Hollongi on the Assam-Arunachal border.

Addressing a press conference here Mr Khandu said the miscreants released the duo after eight days at around 2300 hours.

He said the police arrested three persons involved in the incident--Tahak Tatak, a driver in the police department and distant uncle of Getem, Tapiam Tali and Upen Basumatary, a deserted NDFB cadre.

He said the government had sent a proposal to the Centre for a Unified Command structure on the line of Jammu&Kashmir and Assam.

The chief minister also assured early breakthrough in the twin murder case of June 14. Two sisters were murdered in the Capital Complex.

Home Minister Jarbom Gamlin, also present during the press conference, while owing moral responsibility for the law and order situation in the capital, said the government would enhance security.

"Though there are many demands for my resignation, I refuse to do so and decided that real courage under such situation would be to stand firm and contribute as best as I can in finding solutions to the problems," he added.
