NSCN(IM) condemns raid by AR


Dimapur, August 10: The NSCN (IM) has expressed resentment over the ‘reckless’ act of the 32 Assam Rifles personnel that that raided the residence of Kishore Jeedung, Member, Steering Committee at Dhansiripar, Dimapur district.
The MIP, in a press release, stated that the intruders numbering about 20-30 came wearing mask and without insignia deliberately violating the Cease Fire Ground Rules (CFGR) on August 9 and forcefully made him to sign a NOC which stated that the intruders returned from his house without conducting any form of intrusion or raid at his residence.
“However, right after he signed the paper, the intruders unleashed their real motive to raid and abuse (physically and verbally) his family. They tried to loot the family’s possession, but could only seize his Identity Card,” the NSCN (IM) stated adding the ordeal lasted for more than one and half hour until the Cease Fire Monitoring Cell (CFMC) intervened.
The unfortunate incident was witnessed by the Village Gaon Bura and village elders.
The NSCN (IM) condemned the repeated offensive by the Assam Rifles against the NSCN members despite the ceasefire agreement, which came into effect from August 1997 and the same reinstated reinforcement (the CFGR review committee meeting on 13/06/2018 at Chumukedima)
to observe in letter and spirit the mutually agreed Cease Fire Ground Rules keeping in mind the
Framework Agreement that was signed and for the safe landing of the Indo-Naga political settlement.
With regard to another incident of unprovoked firing by the Indian Army at New
Ngaolong village in Peren district on August 8, where a jawan of the 6 Sector Assam Rifles sustained injury, the NSCN (IM) made it clear that the NSCN has no intention of creating unwanted situation at this crucial hour.
Rather, the GPRN expect the Indian Army to reciprocate the NSCN gesture of respecting the mutually agreed Cease Fire Ground Rules.
The violation from the Indian Army led to the injury of the jawan which was an unintentional affliction. A few NSCN cadres who were on duty and resting at a hut were indiscriminately fired upon by the Assam Rifles personnel that compelled the Naga Army personnel to retaliate, it stated.
