DIMAPUR — The Chuyo Students’ Union Dimapur (CSUD) has called upon the NSCN Angmai faction to immediately release Chop village headman Chopkhu Gangsa and GB Chijgsan Wangham, who were allegedly abducted by the group on November 28.

Condemning the abduction at Chop village under Longding district, Arunachal Pradesh, the union, in a press release, informed that the duo was abducted over “alleged for non-payment of levy” and that the outfit had reportedly demanded more than INR 50 lakh to free the duo.

The CSUD said that Chuyo Centre (village-tract or Chuyo sub-division of Donghi township in Sagaing region) is located in the northwestern part of Myanmar. Due to prevailing situation at Chop village, the International border, which has been sealed, will be continuing until the two villagers are released, it said.

It went on to say that due to the sealed border, the Chuyo areas are starving as they cannot procure essential commodities from the other side of the border. Besides, the movement of students from Chuyo sub-division who are studying in India has been badly affected. 

The CSUD also called the attention of the eastern Nagas in general and CSOs to thoroughly probe the incident and deliver justice at the earliest.

The union further appealed to the 44 Battalion of Assam Rifles to lift restriction along the border.
