The NSCN(I-M) through the MIP reiterated that is was “not involved in the heinous killing of Kasom Khullen SDO and his two staffs,” adding, it “ must be the game plan” of the adversaries or other anti-social group “ to sabotage the hard earned peace process that is underway.” Under the circumstances, the MIP said “ people should not allow themselves to be carried away by some baseless allegations as reported in the local media”.The release said the NSCN(I-M) was “seriously looking into the matter and investigation will proceed in right earnest.” It urged all individuals and civil societies to extend cooperation towards the probe and assured that any information regarding the case would be “handsomely rewarded”. It said the three other persons who were with the slain SDO- Ramthing,Ramshing and Kapangkhui- were still untraceable and urged those involved for their early release. The release affirmed “ let the law follow its own course against anyone who are connected with the murder.” WTR condemns Wung Tangkhul Region of the NSCN(I-M) has expressed shock on learning of the “inhuman killing of SDO Kasom Khullen “ and two other staff by unidentified persons. Condemning the incident, PRO of WTR ‘capt’ V.Hongreinao described it as an “act of cowardice” and those involved have no place in civilized society. Affirming the commitment of the NSCN(I-M)towards peaceful coexistence with all irrespective of race,color and religion, the release said “we are for building harmonious socio-religion and socio-linguistic relations.” In view of the gravity of the crime, the WTR vowed that it would spare no effort or leave any stone unturned to nab the culprits. The WTR expressed condolences to the families of slain SDO Thingnam Kishan, driver Aribam Rajan and mandal Yumman Token whose bludgeoned bodies were discovered at Taphau Kuki village. NSCN(I-M) regrets The NSCN(I-M) has described as “irresponsible” the roles of one Imphal-based vernacular and the sit-in demonstration of the Joint Action Committee(JAC)in blaming its cadres for the brutal murder of SDO Kasom Khullen Dr. Thingnam Kishan and his two staffs. A release issued by the MIP said the report of the vernacular paper was “unbecoming of the role of the mass media” while “ restraint is the need of the hour under such situation”. It said the people’s emotion “ should not be generated in such manner, directed against any organization” . It said the situation could become more explosive if it was “ exploited by anti-social elements with communal sting.” The release expressed surprise over the sit-in demonstration organized by the JAC, where “everything was directed against the NSCN and showing the organization in a very bad taste.” The MIP said the JAC raised “vulgar and indecent” placards “ attacking the NSCN in the filthiest language” adding such protest was regrettable and advised the JAC “ to be more careful and responsible.” “Misdirected protest only foes to hurt people’s sentiments and this is dangerously harmful for social harmony and peaceful coexistence” , it added.
