"His friend escaped from the PLA and reported to the authorities.
All the agencies of Govt of India are requested to step up for his early release," he said.

However, denying the abduction of the Arunachal Pradesh youth, China's Foreign Ministry said on Thursday that it was not aware of the incident.
