Indian Businessmen Found Dead near Burma Border
21 February 2014
Two Indian businessmen who went missing after setting out on a trade trip to the Burmese border town of Tamu were found dead on Thursday, reports the Press Trust of India. The two men, Daljit Singh and Sanvindar Singh, were last seen alive on Feb. 11, when they left the town of Moreh in India’s Manipur State to sell goods in Tamu. Their bodies were found in the Laijang area, about 50 km south of Moreh near the Burma-India border. Local civil society groups blocked cross-border trade from Feb. 17 to pressure local authorities in both countries to step up their efforts to locate the men. The bodies showed signs of violence and were being taken to Imphal, the state capital of Manipur, for a post-mortem.
