Watsü Union Tuli, Ao Students’ Union Tuli (ASUT) and Ao Students’ Union Tzüdikong Town (ASUTT), undertook a silent procession in Tuli on Saturday, to protest the alleged rape of a minor girl by one Soug Ali on December 9 last at Petizüng Ward, Tuli. Later, the three unions submitted a joint memorandum to ADC Tuli demanding the State government to deport all illegal migrants (“Bangladeshi Meyans”) from Tuli soil before December 15, 2008, failing which the public of Tuli would not be responsible for lost of life and property, stated a joint press release issued by the three unions. Calling for a strict check on influx of illegal migrants, with reference to the Bengal Eastern Frontiers Regulation (BEFR) Act 1873, the unions also demanded the government to give a detail list of the Inner Line Permit (ILP) holders residing in Tuli. Terming the “heinous act” of rape as “unforgettable and unforgiving,” the unions appealed the government to award befitting punishment to the culprit and that the punishment should be made public. The memorandum also asked the government to give financial assistance to the victim. Meanwhile, the Yimjenkimong Union Tuli (YUT) also condemned the rape of the 9-year-old girl by Soug Ali. YUT president T. Bendang Tzudir and general secretary Wati Ozükum in a press release also cautioned that if the government failed to make public the cation taken against the accused, the union would resort to its own course of action according to the customary law of Nagas.
