Dimapur, September 2: Naga Council Dimapur (NCD) has supported the decision taken by the Western Sumi Hoho (WSH) and Western Chakhesang Hoho (WCH) Dimapur to deal with the crime perpetrated by the Sumis and Chakhesangs in accordance with the customary law and its practices.
The NCD lauded this bold and notable move taken by Western Sumi Hoho and urged other tribal bodies to emulate the same yardstick to reform and rehabilitate the criminals.
Exploitation by these anti-social elements has adverse consequences on economic and social development especially in Dimapur and these vested groups have also long kept the dreams and aspiration of many Naga people in restrains, it added.
The NCD wholeheartedly supported the move by WSH and WCH and expected the law enforcing agencies and all levels of government organization to cooperatively plan and implement the changes that must be made to bring about prevention, reduction and elimination of crimes that is truly plaguing the Naga society.
