Describing the “inhuman killing” of Kasom Khullen SDO and his two staff members by one of its officers, “Lt. Col” H. Ningshen as “very unfortunate”, the NSCN (I-M) has assured justice in the case and has constituted a high level enquiry committee to probe the incident. The committee has been asked to submit its report on or before March 4. Stating that the ground reality of the case was being handled in the manner it deserves, the MIP/GPRN in a statement also assured to allow the Naga Army rules and regulations to follow its own course. “There is no question of running away from the verdict of the law to save anybody. There will be no pretension and there will be no lapses in delivering justice,” it added. The NSCN (I-M) however made it clear that it was not acting under pressure from any angle whatsoever and that its authority would soon be taking the severest of action on the disgraced Naga Army officer depending on the gravity of the crime. Stating that the verdict was already quite obvious, the MIP said it would abide by the decision of the National Security Council with clear conscience. It also asserted that the crime was committed outside the purview of the NSCN authority by the wayward Naga Army officer. “And while the sword of Damocles is hanging above his head such aberration should not be over exploited and carried too far to affect the whole structure of peace process,” the NSCN (I-M) said adding that certain elements were desperately trying to use the situation with anti-peace and anti-communal harmony. Under any circumstances, the NSCN (I-M) said, the hard earned “Indo-Naga” peace talks should not be undermined by generating confusing interpretation of “Indo-Naga” ceasefire, and the designated camps. “To campaign against NSCN to be grouped as the terrorist organization by some political parties is not politically nice and communally dangerous too. One such act of aberration does not make an organization a terrorist” it said. Noting that black-sheep abound in any organization, the NSCN (I-M) however said that when black-sheep is “cleaned out of the organizations”, political stature should not be targeted with demeaning orchestration. The NSCN (I-M) asserted that if the government of India succumbed to the high tension and emotion over the killing of the SDO and two of his staffers, the latter would simply become victims of dirty politics to undermine the core issue of the “Indo-Naga” political peace process, whose collapse would have widespread socio-political and military ramifications.
