An NSCN-IM functionary ‘Lt. Col.’ H Ningshen has confessed to the brutal killing of SDO Dr Th. Kishan, his driver Aribam Rajen and an official Y Token. In a confessional statement on Sunday, Ningshen said he killed them with his own conscience and not under any “official” direction. He said he was compelled to kill Dr Kishan as he failed to carry out his duty from his office located at Kasom Khullen and instead functioned from his private residence in Imphal against the interest of the public and officials rules. The NSCN-IM functionary also alleged that the SDO manipulated and misappropriated public money allotted for developmental schemes in Kasom sub-division and was found to be closely collaborating with the so-called Naga National Liberation Army (NNLA) led by Aleng and Indian intelligence agencies to undermine NSCN. He said the slain SDO’s anti-NSCN activities continued despite repeated warnings. “And ultimately, I was forced to go by my own conscience to take this drastic action,” Ningshen stated and added that he took the action without any sanction from the government, army or civil authorities. Meanwhile, expressing utter disappointment, the NSCN-IM also disclosed that the CO of Kiusumong Battalion ‘Lt. Col.’ H Ningshen was the brain behind the brutal killing of the SDO and his two aides. ‘Col’ Levi Zimik, PRO/IPR, GHQ, Naga Army, in a release said “such severe measure against the civil servants of Manipur government cannot justify the human action under his command”. The NSCN-IM regretted that one of their senior officers turned out to be the “black sheep of the family”.
