Lievüse Clan:
The Lievüse Clan, Dimapur Unit has strongly condemned the high handedness of the army in conducting repeated raids at the residence of Savi Liegise, a prominent citizen and a public leader of repute.
“It is most unfortunate that the supposedly high profile Indian army having the highest intelligence network swayed by such an insignificant and wrong intelligent report conducted such a blatant and infamous repeated search, intruding upon the residence of an upright public leader whose credentials are unquestionable,” said Ahuzo Tho-u, convenor, Lievüse Clan, Dimapur Unit in a release.
The release said the search was about purported ‘illegal weapon’ suspected to be in Savi’s possession, but no weapon whatsoever were found, which it said “clearly exposed the unreliability of the source of information the army acted upon.”
The clan demanded that the army apologise to Savi for causing irreparable damage to his reputation and also causing untold psychological harm to all the innocent family members, particularly the ladies and the minor children. “It is totally inhuman and deplorable and should be condemned by every right thinking person,” it said.
