Dimapur, August 30: The Rising People’s Party (RPP) has condemned the custodial death of E Henveih Phom on August 25 by the Assam police; terming the incident as an act of terrorism and murder.
“The torturous death of the 35 year old man under Assam Police custody is completely inhumane and befitting of the highest level of punishment under relevant sections of the law,” it said and demanded immediate intervention from the Government of Nagaland at the highest level so that an investigation be set up to book the irresponsible Assam police involved in the case.
While applauding the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and the Indigenous Lawyers Association of India (ILAI) for the commendable act of taking up the Issue and also the various civil society organisations raising their voices for seeking justice, the RPP was of the firm opinion that such acts of ‘Gunda-giri’ and act of terror committed by the law-enforcing forces should not be left unpunished.
