Miram's father Opang Taron said his son was mentally exhausted as the whole incident scared him.

He was tied and blindfolded while in the custody of China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) for more than a week, the father alleged.

"He is still in shock. He was kicked in the back and given a mild electric shock initially. He was kept blindfolded most of the time and his hands were tied during captivity. They untied him only when it was time to eat or relieve himself. But, they provided him with adequate food," Opang Taron told reporters at the function.

BJP MP from Arunachal East Constituency Tapir Gao, who had shared the information of the teen's abduction on January 19 on Twitter, said, "Miram was given a warm welcome by the villagers of Zido, officials and panchayat leaders."

In September 2020, the PLA had allegedly captured five boys from Arunachal Pradesh's Upper Subansiri district before releasing them after about a week, also at a border point in Anjaw district. Arunachal Pradesh shares a 1,080-km boundary with China.
