Kohima, Sep. 25 (EMN): The Doulo Clan Kohima vehemently condemned the assassination attempt on the life of proprietor of M/S Kuda Cold Storage, L Doulo on Sep. 21 presumably by NSCN (K) cadres.
Terming the act as ‘dastardly and beyond human comprehension’, the clan in a condemnation note issued by its chairman, Khazu Doulo and secretary, Liengute Doulo felt that there is no safety for anyone if a 73 year old Naga businessman who is providing employment and hope to the Naga people can be shot at his own workplace by armed men of factions marauding towns and villages. While stating that such terrible and atrocious activities are nothing short of ‘goondaism and terrorism’ in nature, the clan has extended its full support to the 15 days ultimatum given to the law enforcement agencies by the DCCI, BAN, EDBA, CCCTA and others to book the criminals.
Meanwhile, the clan thanked all those organisations and individuals for taking a strong stand to fight against such murderous people who take the name of Naga national movement and prey upon people for extortion and taking away their hard earned money.
The clan also expressed hope that the law enforcing agencies will book the criminals at the earliest so that citizens are protected and the people’s confidence in them will be bestowed again, lest the confidence of the people is lost in the law enforcing agencies in fighting against criminals.
