NSF, NPMHR questions delay in Wuzu Firing incident investigation


Dimapur, July 20: The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) and Naga Peoples’ Movement for Human Rights (NPMHR) has questioned the Joint Inquiry Commission (JIC) formed to investigate the killings of 13-year old boy, Aso and 14-year old Tuzali on July 16 three years ago in the Wuzu Firing incident, for its delay in delivering justice.
In a joint press release, the NSF and NPMHR stated that 3 years have passed since the killing of 13 years old Aso and 14 years old Tüzali on July 16 by the Assam Rifles headed by Major Surinder Singh of the 46 AR C Coy, Akhwego Post at Wuzu village under Phek District and more than two years since the Joint Inquiry Commission (JIC) was formed to investigate on the killings of the Wuzu Firing Incident.
They said JIC was set up by the Nagaland State Government on November 22, 2015 to investigate into the incident, where in affidavits were filed and had further undergone cross examination. This was followed by court summoning of the eye witnesses and parties that had filed the written statements, but despite of the ample time and evidences, the JIC has not come to any concrete conclusion.
Both the organizations asked the JIC how long it would take to deliver justice and further demanded that the enquiry be expedited to deliver justice to the victims, families of the victims, and the communities and villages affected by the killing at the earliest possible time.
