Dimapur, November 3: The Government of the People’s Republic of Nagalim (GPRN) has condemned the violation of Cease Fire Ground Rules by the Indian Army personnel led by Lt. Col. Mohd. Zabiulla, Army No. 64304 of Signal Department, Zakhama post/unit, on November 2 at around 4.30 p.m. at Kamdi bazaar, Jalukie sub-division, Peren district where the Council Head Quarters (CHQ) of the GPRN is situated.
A press release issued by its MIP stated that 16 Indian Army personnel came in 4 gypsies and trespassed the CHQ Hebron gate to go towards Jalukie. However, they were stopped at the gate by the Naga Army personnel who were already alerted about the Indian Army personnel moving towards the CHQ Hebron.
The Indian Army personnel were detained and interrogated for about half an hour. The Indian Army personnel who started their journey from Rangapahar Army camp claimed that they followed the direction given by passersby and had no idea that they were to cross the CHQ of the GPRN.
The GPRN wondered why the Lt. Colonel did not coordinate with the various Indian Army units stationed in and around Dimapur.
It said the Indian Army personnel could have taken the Sukhovi village route where the Indian Army has its training center to connect to Jalukie or taken the Niuland route which is being used by the public due to road block/landslide at NH 29 near Chumukedima.
Stating that it was a total negligence on the part of the Indian Army personnel to have reached a sensitive area such as the door step of the CHQ of the GPRN, the GPRN said the Indian Army personnel were cautioned and set free in good faith after they admitted their serious mistake.
