Director General (DG) Assam Rifles Lt. Gen. K S Yadava has termed Thursday’s incident near Pfutsero where one AR officer and five other jawans were taken into custody by NSCN (I-M) as “most unfortunate”.“The matter has now been amicably resolved” he said but added, “the incident should not have taken place”. The DG was speaking to news persons Saturday here at 26 Assam Rifles. It may be recalled that an AR captain identified as one Capt S Momo along with five jawans of the 33 AR were taken into custody by NSCN (I-M) on Thursday for entering their designated camp area but later released after midnight. IGAR (N) Maj General JP Nehra defended the officer for carrying out duty in the national interest. He said nobody had complained about Capt.Momo’s behavior during Friday’s meeting at Pfutsero that was attended by chairman CFMG, ADC, SDPO and also a representative of the NSCN (I-M). He said the officer and jawans had gone to nearby area to extend help the village which itself indicated a noble and friendly act. The jawans strayed into the area due to “technical error” as they took a new road that turned out to be one that led to the designated camp of the NSCN (I-M), he said. Commenting on the action of the NSCN (I-M) Maj General JP Nehra termed it as “most severe violation of the spirit of Ceasefire Fire Ground Rules”.
