A cadre of the NSCN K (Nyemlang Konyak-NK) was killed and another apprehended in an encounter with security forces at Baimho village under Zunheboto district on September 9 night, PRO (Defence) Lt Col Sumit K Sharma stated in a press note. PRO said that a search operation was launched following specific inputs about movement of armed cadres in the area. 

However, during the operation, PRO said that the insurgents fired upon the security column who also retaliated, after which two cadres were apprehended, one in injured condition. 
The injured cadre was immediately shifted to the district hospital by the police, where he succumbed to his injuries, PRO said. The deceased was reportedly identified as one Tovi Sumi.
Meanwhile, security forces recovered one 9mm pistol, two magazines, four fired cartridge cases and 23 live rounds. PRO further said that two local men, who were apprehended at the site, were later released in the presence of the police and Gaon Bura.
Condolence: NSCN (K-NK) senior functionary, ‘lt. gen.’ Niki Sumi expressed sadness over the demise of ‘lieut.’ Tovi Sumi. In a statement, Niki lauded the exemplary and ultimate sacrifice of Tovi, “all for the sake of sovereign Nagaland for Christ”. 
In another statement, through its MIP in-charge Pilot Sumi, NSCN (K-NK) accused NSCN (I-M) of collaborating with Yung-Aung led group and trying to desperately to “whip up emotion of unfounded and unsubstantiated claims of a East-West divide.” 
It further went on to allege that NSCN (I-M), with the help of government of India, was “not only instigating, but physically and materially supporting Yung Aung and his cohorts and trying to repeat the self destructive history of 1988, by spreading their insidious propaganda of a East-West divide.” 
MIP said the NSCN/GPRN had avoided any unwarranted acts against fellow Nagas and had unilaterally maintained the peaceful disposition. However, MIP said it cannot stand idle when “our sovereign political rights are bartered away.”
