DIMAPUR — The Zeliangrong Youth Organisation of Nagaland (ZYON) has expressed shock and anguish following the rape of a minor by her own father on multiple occasions in Peren district.

While condemning the act, ZYON stated that it had been going on for six years and that he had been covering up the inhumane act by threatening the child and family members with life threats. It stated that it is unthinkable that the father, who is supposed to be the family’s keeper, can pose a threat to the child and the family.

“This beastly behaviour, mental illness and deliberate crime is a threat to the society and it should be checked, treated and rewarded with the highest possible punishment of the law so that no such heinous crime occurs in society,” read the note.

ZYON stated that the organisation is deeply ashamed of the presence of such individuals infiltrating and polluting the community and that perpetrators of such heinous crimes cannot be tolerated in a civilised society.

It called on all right-thinking citizens to condemn such cowardice acts and appealed to the law enforcement agencies to rigorously investigate and deliver justice to the victim and punish the culprit that may be deemed fit under the law expeditiously.

It proposed that no bail be granted and that anyone who does so should be held solely responsible for any future consequences. The organisation also expressed its deepest sympathies to the victim and wished her a speedy recovery from psychological and physical trauma.

Jalukie Students’ Union: The Jalukie Students’ Union (JSU) also condemned the “unprecedented reprehensible act” and said that this heinous crime strikes at the very core of society’s values and must be met with unequivocal condemnation by all right-thinking individuals.

“We stand united in our demand for justice and accountability. We call for a swift and thorough  investigation of this case, with all relevant laws applied to ensure that the accused faces the full  consequences of his actions,” read a condemnation note issued by the union.

JSU emphasised the imperative need for expediting the submission of the chargesheet, urging authorities not to grant bail to the accused, considering the gravity of the offence. It stressed the importance of strictly adhering to the provisions of the POCSO Act to safeguard the rights of the victim and ensure a fair and expeditious trial.

“Our solidarity lies with the victim and her family, and we will continue to advocate for their rights and for a society free from such despicable crimes,” it read.
