Nagaland News

Dimapur, May 13: The Khiamniungan Students’ Union Dimapur has strongly condemned the assault on Alex Lotsangkhyong, a minor, son of John Tsulise Sangtam by some members of CVYS on May 6.

Terming as unacceptable the assault on a minor, the KSUD also called upon all to condemn the act. It also wished the people to do away with prideful thinking and egoistic approach of claiming the land of Naga’s as their own and taking law into their own hands.
“…the union is greatly dismayed by the sudden turn of events from the CVYS after coming up with a justifying statement despite their loopholes and thereby seeking a mere apology which is highly undesirable and unsatisfactory,” it said.
The union further appealed to the concerned authority to take stern action against those culprits. It also prayed for the speedy recovery of the victim.
