Dayo refutes allegations by Khango-led NSCN
Dimapur, Aug. 30 (EMN): The Dimapur Ao Youth Organisation (Dayo) has refuted the allegations made by Khango Konyak-led NSCN on August 29, terming it as totally false and baseless.
The group had alleged that “a mob of Dimapur Ao Youth took away the lady manager of SymBios Creations Pvt. Ltd. and prevented her from withdrawing the FIR, at the same time forcibly filed the FIR in the kidnapping case”.
‘Dayo, taking cognisance of a crime committed by some cadres of NSCN (Khango) issued a press release on August 27, condemning the act which was carried by local dailies on August 28. As fallout of this press release, the NSCN (Khango), through a communiqué on August 28 summoned Dayo and others to meet them at their office in Thilixu village at 4 pm on August 29, for consultation and clarification on kidnapping allegation,’ stated a press release issued by Dayo president and general secretary on Saturday.
“In this regard, it is made known to all that Dayo does not deem itself obligated to comply with this demand of theirs. Dayo firmly recognises and believes that the law enforcing agencies of the Government of Nagaland are the only competent entities to handle and investigate the matter. It would therefore allow the law to take its own course which is subjudice. Dayo feels it absolutely imperative and necessary to take this stand for the sake of civility and rule of law and not impede the investigation by conducting parallel deliberations,” the statement read.
The youth organisation advised the proprietor of SymBios Creation Pvt. Ltd. and the Aoyimti Lanur Telongjem not to attend any summons or meetings on this issue without the knowledge of Dayo.
“We fully stand by our parent body ASTD’s resolution to safeguard the bonafide members advocating their livelihood and that any palpable harassment meted out without any tangible reason and proof shall not be tolerated,” it added.
“The NSCN-K (Khango) may come to Dayo office anytime after prior information for any consultation deemed necessary,” it stated.
Dayo reiterated its demand to the concerned authorities to expedite the investigation and deliver justice so that rule of law prevails.
