Authority suspects BUSDP in kidnapping taxi driver


Authorities in Bhutan have suspected involvement of cadres of the Bhutan United Socialist Democratic Party (BUSDP), an underground armed outfit, in kidnapping a taxi driver from Sarpang-Gelephu highway on Oct 22.

The unnamed taxi driver,37, who is being treated after his rescue is learnt to have reported police that he was allegedly kidnapped by cadres of BUSDP.

The state-owned Kuensel has claimed that the driver was unable to furnish details owing to his health condition as he was still reported to be in the state of shock.

“The Gelephu-based taxi driver also told police that there were eight people when he was kidnapped from the road,” wrote the Kuensel.

The Bhutan News Service couldn’t verify the allegation from the Party.
