Sumi Aphuyemi Kuqhakulu Dimapur (SAKD) and Ghokimi Kuposhukulu Dimapur (GKD) have clarified that three Sumi citizens who were allegedly abducted and assaulted by the NSCN (I-M) Chumukedima town command on November 1 at Chumukedima were not involved in any faction. Expressing outrage over the “abduction and physical assault,” SAKD president Vikugha Kappo and general secretary Shikato Shohe in a press release identified the three abductees as X Lukiye Swu, a teachers as well as executive member of SAKD; K Zhetovi Assumi, a businessman and office bearer of GKD, and Vikheto Assumi, a class XII student of Zakiesetuo Memorial HSS. “The trio had gone to pay auto tax to the proper authorities of the GPRN, feeling reluctant to do the transaction through a middleman. After failure to meet the authorities, they were on their way back when they were forcefully abducted, physically assaulted causing serious injury in one case and released,” SAKD said. The union also said it had come to light that the abduction and assault were “perpetrated” on the grounds of suspicion that they were members of rival factions. Urging the NSCN (I-M) not to repeat similar mistakes in future, SAKD also said the purpose of the clarification was not to create further ill-will between the involved parties but to place on record that the three abductees were bonafide members of SAKD. In a separate press release, GKD chairman P Vihoto Shohe and joint secretary Ghosivi Wotsa also testified that the three were not members of any political organization or engage in anti-social activities. “We deeply regret that the perpetrators committed the act inspite of repeated pleas of innocence by the victims,” GKD said.
