Dimapur, Oct. 22 (EMN): The Phusachodu Union of Kohima has condemned what it called the ‘terrorist attitude and atrocious action’ of the Assam Rifles in raiding the residence of a citizen.

The organisation issued a press release on Sunday informing of a raid on the house of one Rudasa Curhah.

“On the night of 19th Oct. 2017, at around 8:30 PM to 11:40 PM the Assam Rifle jawans along with four persons with black mask in civil dress and also with one Nagaland police (sic) as guide came to the house of Mr. Rudasa Curhah and raided his house without any reason and badly harassed the family,” the press release stated.

“Mr. Rudasa Curhah belongs to Phusachodu village is (sic) a very right thinking and an innocent citizen who has been staying in a private rented house in Jail Colony, Kohima. It is really surprised to know the story, since there is no reason to raid his house,” the union explained.

The organisation has condemned the action of the security force ‘as a barbarous act’ and called the Assam Rifles “wisdomless organisation, and lack of administrative intelligence.”

This raid on an ‘innocent person’s house’ is ‘a matter of terrorising the innocent citizens,’ the press release stated. It has violated the ‘right to personal liberty of living and privacy of life of the public, committed guilty of house trespass, harassment to innocent citizens and children, and also committed guilty of the offence of theft (stolen 5 Nos. of ATM card),’ the union stated.

The organisation has ‘earnestly requested’ the superintendent of Kohima police to ‘furnish the identity of the four persons with black mask who came with the AR jawans to the Phusachodu Union at the earliest.’
