Drawing attention to the information provided by police, the Veterinary Colony Council (VCC) has clarified that one of accused in gang-rape case identified as Imtikumzuk, son of Limatemsu of Mongsenyimti village is not a resident of veterinary colony, Burma camp. Accordingly SDPO, Dimapur has also endorsed that the accused (Imtikumzuk) had only taken shelter with one of his relative at Jeera Mill locality, North Block, Burma Camp, Dimapur. In another rejoinder Yetoi Chishi of Zutovi village has clarified that one of the accused in gang-rape case identified as Hetoi alias Hetobu is the son of Lhozhumo( and not Yetoi Chishi). A statement issued by Yetoi Chishi stated that the accused Hetoi @ Hetobu had been exiled by the Zutovi village council on November 12, 1998. Hetoi@ Hetobu had earlier also committed gang-rape on April 14,2002 which was carried by the local papers on May 10,2002 under the headline “3 miscreants held in Dimapur”,the statement by Yetoi said. It is clarified that the initials ‘P.S.’ (Police Station) was missed while mentioning Zutovi village as under Diphupar P.S. due to typographical error in the earlier story. Meanwhile, Police sources believe Hetoi@Hetobu to be the prime accused in the March 25,2009 gang rape and described as a hardened criminal. According to police, Hetobu was also an accused in an earlier gang rape on April 14, 2002. Police said Hetobu was also involved with one faction but deserted it with some weapons. He obtained bail in the earlier case the sources said. The other accused, Imtikumzuk is one of those who escaped in 2007 from the Mokokchung jail and since an absconder, police said. All four-Hetoi aka Hetobu, Imtikumzuk, Sabo Sangtam and Kaghato - are evading arrest. One Pinato, involved in the gang rape-attempted murder and robbery on March 25 is under police custody. Public pressure continues to mount on the investigating agency to nab all the accused, four of who are still absconding.So far, police remain tightlipped about the case.
