NSCN(R) condemns AR raid


Dimapur, May 10: The NSCN/ GPRN (Reformation) has condemned the arbitrary raid perpetrated by the 32 Assam Rifles, led by one Major. Praveen, at the residence of Tokato Achumi, Auditor General (AG).
According to a press release issued by its MIP, the raid was done in the wee hours at 2.30 a.m. and went on for hours, which caused huge harassment and immense mental affliction to all the family members. It said Tokato, who lives with his dad, is the son of Ghoshito Achumi, a respected Dimapur citizen , who is presently the GB of Churches Colony, and also the first President of Dimapur Naga Students Union (DNSU) and former member of erstwhile DTC (now DMC).
“The marauding ARs as usual disrespect all human ethics, jumped the boundary wall and with forceful intrusion began to ransack properties, and after finding no weapons, the AR out of frustration, opened the personal chest of the Steel Almirah, and even resorted to counting cashes , which makes us wonder as to whether they were looking for weapons or money,” the release stated.
The NSCN(R) reminded the Assam Rifles that though there might be some few skirmishes, differences and infighting amongst Naga factions, at the end of the day “we are all Nagas and will always be Nagas” rather the real enemies are the occupational Indian Armed forces.
It also alleged that the Major went on threatening Tokato, and warned him to resign from National Service, or be arrested the next time.
It mentioned that before joining the National Service, Tokato was a social worker and gave the better part of his life for the society as President of Dimapur Sumi Students Union (DSSU), and Speaker, Dimapur Naga Students Union (DNSU) and joined the National Movement to yet again give his all for the Nagas. It said treating such kind of promising Naga leader in a distasteful manner is very unfortunate and is an insult to the victim in particular and Nagas in general.
The NSCN (R) advised advises the GOI to rein-in their wayward and indiscipline boys, taking into considerations, the agreed Cease Fire ground rules, lest these kind of unwarranted actions by few vested junior Indian Army personnel in the likes of Major Praveen derails the hard earned peace between the GOI and the NSCN.
