Dimapur, July 3: The NSCN (IM) has rebutted that news report that the Assam Rifles (AR) busted a gun making factory in Ukhrul town, allegedly run by NSCN operative on July 1.
“We put on record that NSCN have nothing to do with such illegal factory. The suspected person Mr. Lightson who owned the factory is not NSCN member nor connected with us in any manner. The AR should not have acted in damning hurry to drag in NSCN name without verifying the antecedents of the person involved, though such slanderous campaign by the AR against NSCN is nothing new,” said the MIP NSCN/GPRN in a rejoinder.
