NSCN-IM cadres charged with assaulting civilians

Dimapur, May 30 (MExN): A number of civilians, including a mother and school staffers, were assaulted by cadres of the NSCN (IM) on May 29, in Pimla, Dimapur, the Aqahuto Sumi Totimi Hoho stated in a press statement. Following the assault, the Aqahuto Sumi Totimi Hoho has served a deadline to the NSCN (IM) “commander” to tender an apology, failing which “the ASTH will march to Hebron camp for the justification.”According to the ASTH, on the evening of May 29 at around 7:30 pm, one Mrs. Vikali was assaulted by a group of NSCN (IM) cadres under the command of a certain Howoto. The victim was on her way to buy medicines for her daughter and in the dark, her torchlight accidentally shone upon the NSCN (IM) cadres. On this, the cadres proceeded to assault Vikali by kicking her onto the roadside. She even apologized to the cadres but this did not stop the cadres from assaulting her, the hoho stated. Later, the group of cadres proceeded to Yehovi Memorial School, Pimla, and assaulted two teaching staffers and the headmaster of the school as well who live in the residential quarters in the vicinity. “The NSCN (IM) cadres did not stop the assault even though the headmaster and staff identified themselves and pleaded for them to stop” the hoho stated. Noting the assault, the Aqahuto Sumi Totimi Hoho (ASTH) has demanded to know what benefit was derived from assaulting the helpless mother and teachers by the armed cadres who claim to be “fighting for the motherland.”The Aqahuto Sumi Totimi Hoho has demanded that the “commander” responsible for the assault should tender apology to the Aqahuto Sumi Totimi Hoho and Pimla STH on or before June 5 failing which, the ASTH will march to Hebron camp for “justification” the hoho stated in a note appended by its president V Sumiholi Swu and general secretary Z Khetoli Zhimomi. Stating that the action of the NSCN (IM) cadres has insulted the entire ASTH, the hoho added that if the first demand is not met, the “commander” should be handed over to the ASTH.
