In a miraculous escape, an activist of the GPRN/NSCN returned from the jaws of death after he, along with two others were abducted by rival NSCN (I-M) cadres who blindfolded them and directed a volley of bullets towards them killing two of his companions on the spot.
Giving an account of his escape, Vikishe, a “Leacy” in the GPRN/NSCN said three of them were abducted Wednesday last when they went to Punglwa village on an invitation to receive some donation. While they were coming out after a meeting with the village council chairman, two GBs and Council members, some NSCN (I-M) cadres numbering about 10-15 arrived in three vehicles that included a Bolero, Gypsy and a Van (all white) and took them to Mhainamtsi village.
When asked if he identified any of the abductees he said, “I can recognize them they are all from Zeliang and Tangkhul community”.
Vikishe said that after blindfolding them with their hands and legs tied at the back, the rivals tortured them with butts and kicks and also trampled over them saying it was a massage for the body. He said the abductees accused them (Sumis) of initiating unification all for money.
He said that the abductees took them to a place between Mhainamtsi and Kiyevi village and made them stand close by each other and fired rounds of bullets at them. Vikishe who stood at one side of the row narrated that he felt bullets pass above his head to which he collapsed out of shock and fear adding that the bodies of two of his comrades fell upon him. He  also alleged that the NSCN (I-M) cadres assuming that all three were dead, “urinated upon us”.
Vikishe also said that before they went to Pungwla village they were assured of a calm situation there, by the village council chairman. The other two deceased were earlier identified as Viyito and Khatoi both of whom were “Khapurs”.
