Dimapur, March 6

NPCC President and MLA, SI Jamir has termed ‘unfortunate and uncalled for’ the three days of volatile situation in Dimapur that has witnessed the unruly mob taking law into their own hands to lynch one rape accused followed by police firing to disperse the unruly mob leading to the death of another civilian and injuring many others.“Living in present civilized times, serving mob justice to the alleged rapist has violated the basic tenets of human rights and portrayed the image of the state in a negative way which can never be justified as no individual or group is above the rule of law”.
Expressing regret over the death of the rape accused Syed Farid Khan at the hands of unruly mob and a civilian Inito Chishi who was shot dead during police firing, Jamir condoled both the bereaved families while wishing speedy recovery to all the injured.
Jamir called upon the people of the state, especially the citizens of Dimapur to exercise restraint and avoid escalating the situation where unwanted elements will take undue advantage and the innocents suffer. He requested the bloggers on the social media especially the younger generation to desist from posting provocative comments, pictures and videos as enough of damage has been caused by the senseless postings of some irresponsible bloggers that has gone viral on the mainstream media and has brought more harm than good.
The MLA appealed to all sections of the society to maintain peace and co-operate with the law enforcing agencies to restore the situation to normalcy. Further urges the state government to strictly enforce the rule of law and not to spare any individual, group or leaders inciting people to take law into their own hands that begets senseless violence and vandalism.
