In what's feasible to give a soothing balm to the fratricidal killings, the GPRN/NSCN today released three people whom it held for "highly suspicious" reasons.
The three released were identified as Urthing, son of Somi of Ukhrul town and two brothers Chongthong and Tanmong sons of Tanchimong of Tsumchuk village. Handing over the three persons from an undisclosed location in Dimapur late evening to the Tangkhul Hoho Nagaland and Khiamniungan Union Dimapur with Joint Forum GBs & DBs and some prominent church and public leaders witnessing it, the GPRN/NSCN said it was releasing the three persons on humanitarian ground and with the hope that the NGOs could convey a positive message. "We release them in the name of our God" said GPRN/NSCN town commander.
The GPRN/NSCN said that they noticed the three moving about in a scooter at Blue Hill area in a "highly suspicious manner" and after monitoring their movement for about 15-20 minutes apprehended the trio at around 6:30 am as they were already heading towards Borolingri, "a suspected area". It said that after verification it discovered that the three were public where Urthing was serving as a mechanic in a certain workshop at Duncan Bosti.
The GPRN/NSCN asserted that there was no point in killing public adding that the public had nothing to do with factionalism.
Tangkhul Hoho Nagaland, president Joseph Shingmaisui who spoke briefly said that the act of the GPRN/NSCN was "so appealing and convincing". He said that the safe release of the trio sent a message that "no Naga brothers would touch civilian brothers". Joseph wished that all tribal town commanders were like "you" referring to the town commander of the GPRN/NSCN.
Khiamniungan Union Dimapur, general secretary Y. Khomong also expressing gratitude said that it was something beyond expectation when compared with the prevailing situation.
Meanwhile, the Joint Forum GB&DB also appreciated the GPRN/NSCN for safely releasing the three persons.
