Meanwhile, consequent upon the heinous act of vandalizing the NSF Oking and the subsequent failure of the authorities concerned to book the perpetrators of the heinous crime despite the lapse of 5 days, the NSF directed all its federating units & subordinate bodies to hoist black flags at their respective Oking.

“This exercise shall continue until befitting actions are initiated by the authorities against the culprits involved in the criminal act”, NSF said.
It also asked the federating units and subordinate bodies to submit compliance reports along with pictorial and video recordings to the office of NSF before 5 p.m. of June 2.
