NSCN (R) condemns raid by Assam Rifles
Dimapur, May 10 (EMN): The NSCN (Reformation) has strongly condemned the arbitrary raid perpetrated by the 32 Assam Rifles led by one Major Praveen at the residence of its Auditor General (AG), Tokato Achumi in the wee hour at 2:30 a.m.
NSCN (R) press release through its MIP stated that the unwarranted raid had caused harassment and immense mental affliction to all the family members.
Tokato lives with his father Ghoshito Achumi, a respected Dimapur citizen, who is presently the GB of Churches Colony and also the first president of Dimapur Naga Students Union (DNSU) and former member of erstwhile DTC (now DMC).
NSCN (R) has accused the Assam Rifles of undermining all human ethics, who jumped the boundary wall and forcibly intruded to ransack properties in an attempt to find weapons. On finding that there was no weapons, the AR, out of frustration, opened the personal chest of the steel Almirah and resorted to counting cashes.
Besides, it added that the personal room of Tokato’s father was also trampled and treaded upon with no respect of an otherwise respected senior citizen.
It added that Tokato was threatened to resign from national service or be arrested the next time.
It mentioned that Tokato, before joining the national service, was a social worker who gave better part of his life for the society as president of Dimapur Sumi Students’ Union (DSSU) and as speaker of Dimapur Naga Students’ Union (DNSU).
While stating that ‘terrorism’ could be classified into political terrorism, military terrorism, state sponsored terrorism etc, NSCN (R) stated that the very kind of action by the Indian security forces and the Assam Rifles was nothing short of ‘military terrorism.’
NSCN (R) has advised the GOI to rein-in their wayward and indiscipline boys, taking into considerations, the agreed ceasefire ground rules, lest “these kind of unwarranted actions by few vested junior Indian army personnel in the likes of Major Praveen derails the hard earned peace between the GOI and the NSCN.”
