Political parties and various unions have in separate press statements condemned the recent spurt in criminal activities in Dimapur, including the abduction and killing of businessman Prashanjit Dhar whose body was recovered Sunday at a tea estate in neighbouring Assam. NPCC: Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) vice president Nillo Rengma said though abduction for ransom, extortion, intimidation, especially against business community in Dimapur, had become daily affairs, the government of the day was not bothered and law enforcing agency expressed helplessness. Stating that this year alone, there were twenty cases of abduction, NPCC said the State government had failed to book a “single culprit” in the abduction cases. NPCC asked for how long would DAN Government treat abductors, murderers, extortionists and criminal activists as “political in nature.” Maintaining that development activities in the State had come to a standstill due to criminal activities, NPCC said it was high time for the government to restore and maintain law and order in the State. DCC Dimapur: Expressing shock over the brutal murder of businessman Prashanjit Dhar, DCC Dimapur general secretary Timir Choudhury said the injuries and torture inflicted on the businessman before he was murdered, proved that those involved in the crime were “barbaric and beastly with no value for human life.” DCC also informed that Congress MLA of Dimapur-II A/C, SI Jamir, who was presently out of station, had also condemned the brutal murder. Appealing to the administration to be more vigilant since gun-toting miscreants were having a field day and doing as they wished in Dimapur, the DCC also regretted that the mortal remains of the businessman had to be kept in the morgue for more than three hours due to absence of doctor to conduct the post-mortem. “This shows total lack of commitment and concern for the welfare and sentiments of the general public,” DCC stated.
