In response to the request of the GPRN/NSCN to extend the deadline for another 15 days to look into the demands set by it in connection with the shooting incident on May 2 in Dimapur where two of its leaders were injured, the All Sumi Students’ Union (SKK) has unanimously resolved to extend till May 11, 12 noon. The SKK in a joint press statement issued by its president, Abeto L. Shohe and general secretary, Mughato K. Swu said the request of the GPRN/NSCN was thoroughly deliberated upon during its emergency meeting on Tuesday and unanimously resolved to extend the dateline in consideration in the of the GPRN/NSCN’s “technical problem.” The SKK however reiterated its demands to hand over those involved in the life attempt on its speaker, Benito Chisho and former president Kiphire District Sumi Students’ Union, Atoka Chophy to the Dimapur district administration. The SKK is also demanding the GPRN/NSCN to discharge the culprits from active national service besides the demand for exemplary punishment to the officer under whose command the “unfortunate incident” happened. The SKK had threatened to pursue its own course of action if the GPRN/NSCN failed to fulfill its demands. It was learnt that Atoka Chopy successfully operated upon while Benito Chophy was yet to be operated upon. Inquiry panel In the backdrop of May 2 shooting incident, in which two Sumi Kiphimi Kuqhakulu (SKK) leaders were fatally injured, and subsequent ultimatum by SKK, the GPRN/NSCN said it has constituted five-member inquiry committee to “urgently” pursue the case. Stating that its personnel responsible for the incident have been detained, GPRN/NSCN in a press statement issued by its publicity cell appealed all aggrieved parties, seeking justice for the incident, to cooperate till inquiry committee tabled its findings within fifteen-day period. GPRN/NSCN also affirmed that it would leave no stone unturned to reform its “civil and military wings” to follow the path that guaranteed free and frank communication with Nagas at all levels. While asserting that GPRN/NSCN harbored no ill will towards any organization, group or individual for the “harsh comments”, post May 2 incident, the GPRN/NSCN said it however observed the duplicity and hollow comment of “IM gang” by twisting the incident to suit “their evil plan.” “Their attempt to throw in poisonous dictions to incite division, hatred and animosity on tribal inclination is all too familiar,” GPRN/NSCN alleged.
