NSCN/GPRN (Khango) refutes

Nagaland News

Dimapur, June 12: The NSCN/GPRN (Khango) has refuted certain claims made by the Defence PRO in the matter pertaining to the raid on the residence of the group’s Kilo Secretary at Thilixu Village on June 3 by the 43rd Assam Rifles.
“While clarifying against the PRO statement that an individual attempted to evade arrest inspection and fled from the scene, is totally ‘false and baseless’ which holds no water. The NSCN/ GPRN (K) strongly questioned the Assam Rifles for frisking/checking and conducting MVCP near the vicinity of CFSB, which cannot be tolerated and unacceptable under any circumstances”, it stated in a press release issued on Wednesday.
It accused the Assam Rifles of “always targeting NSCN members undermining bilateral Ceasefire Ground Rules and its mechanism as tools without any rhyme and reason”.
It also “advised” the security forces to refrain from such activities immediately “so as to avoid any escalation of bilateral existence rather maintain peaceful co-existence between the two entities”.
It demanded from the competent authority to take “necessary remedial and corrective measures against the erring officer” at the earliest.
“As sincerely committed to restore peace and tranquillity in Nagaland, the NSCN/GPRN had been tirelessly striving for years, therefore the security forces are advised to desist from such kind of unwarranted actions and adhere to agreed Ceasefire Ground Rules in letter and in spirit”, it added.
