Dimapur, Feb. 17 (EMN): The Against Corruption and Unabated Taxation (Acaut) Nagaland on Sunday said it was “appalled” at the failure of “different Naga political groups” to take action on their respective cadres involved in the “duping, robbery-cum-kidnapping” of a Wilson Kenye.

According to an Acaut statement, the modus operandi of the cadres —posing as used-car sellers and robbing INR 6,00,000 from the buyer—was the lowest form of business treachery. “To add salt to the injury, when the victim filed an FIR, the very next day he was kidnapped for another ransom of INR 6, 00,000.

“Such atrocity and unreasonable behaviour is beyond all human reasonable limits. Naga public should now seriously question what kind of a bizarre and lawless society we are creating. Is this a glimpse of future that is to come?” the statement read.

Most Naga political groups, it stated, were taking the ongoing peace talks as a “license to tax the helpless public.” It demanded that Kenye be repaid what is rightfully his “and a public apology for the harassment melted out to him.”

Lauding Kenye for doing the “right thing”, it stated that more citizens should follow his example.

Those Naga political groups whose cadres were involved in the incidents should be given befitting punishment, it stated.

“…the state machineries are requested to exercise their full power to see that such criminals are tried under relevant law of the land. ACAUT also request the chairman of Ceasefire Monitoring Group to officially involve and see that justice is served.”
