The Naga Peoples’ movement for Human Rights has strongly condemned the action of NSCN (I-M) functionary who confessed to the killing of Kasom Khullen SDO Kishan Thingam and his two staff members Yumnam Token and Aribam Rajen Sharma. While appreciating ‘Kilo Kilonser’ Kedutsii Tsuzuh and ‘Col’ Levi Zimik for their affirmation that the NSCN (I-M) had no hand in the murder and that their cadres if found involved in the case would be awarded befitting punishment, the NPMHR in a release issued by its general secretary Dr Venuh on Monday reminded the organization of its assurance and commitment. “We demand that the guilty be put under trial immediately and severely penalized by the competent authority without any attempt whatsoever to manipulate the due course of justice,” the release stated. The NPMHR also termed the allegations made against late Th Kishan as not only “dehumanizing” but also as a “very unhealthy face-saving exercise” that should have been avoided when dealing with such a tragic and unwarranted event. It said this was not the time for blame-game but a time to take responsibility in bringing the guilty to account. Observing that this traumatizing incident has once again been a testing time for the different communities of the region, the NPMHR appreciated the role of different organizations and communities in maintaining a peace during this trying period. It also appealed to the public to uphold the dignity and respect that each of us have for one another and maintain communal harmony during this difficult time.
