GPRN/NSCN cautions against release of Isak Sumi
A number of incidents have taken place in our state especially around Dimapur, Kohima and Zunheboto where people and business establishments have been threatened with death and bomb threats. Some shops have borne the brunt of such acts where people have even experienced deaths in their family. With these kinds of anti-social social activities taking place, nobody is secure in their own place. The irony is that, all these activities are being practiced by certain individuals for their personal gains.For instance, three years ago, an IRB personnel sustained bullet injuries in a shoot-out at a BOC near Chandmari, Kohima. In another event, a bomb was thrown inside a jewellery shop in Murgi Patti, Dimapur, injuring two people, where one died succumbing to his injuries.
In Zunheboto district, three criminals were rescued at gun-point from the district jail on the 29th of October, 2013 resulting in the suspension of three police personnel. There are numerous incidents which occurred, pertaining to the same group of people while nothing is being done about it.
One such person who comes to mind when all the above incidents are mentioned is that of Mr. Isak Sumi, belonging to the Khaplang group, who is at present under the custody of the Dimapur Central jail personnel, detained for possession of multiple arms from Zunheboto. Mr. Isak is responsible for master-minding all the mentioned incidences.
The GPRN/NSCN is compelled to state that such kind of repeated offenders should not be let off scot-free.
That, if the district administration and the law enforcing agencies release Mr. Isak from its custody, GPRN/NSCN shall demand immediate release of all the civil and military members who have been booked under National Security Act (NSA) for mere possession of arms. GPRN/NSCN reiterates unconditional release of all its members booked under NSA for arms possession on the day of Isak’s release from Dimapur Central jail.
