Reacting to the news report sourced from the Assam Rifles PRO, which appeared in a section of the local media on May 25, the GPRN/NSCN dismissed the report as one-sided and “nothing but self glorification with exaggerated fallacy” by the AR. Publicity cell of the GPRN/NSCN clarified that the two named individuals - Umesh Singh and Rajiv Soni- were arrested and detained by it for indulging in illegal supply of liquor and other abusive substances in connivance with anti-social elements in Dimapur. It charged the duo of “actively assisting and abetting criminal activities in the state through illegal business” that went against the policy of GPRN/NSCN. “Their arrest and detention was a result of their failure to respect the people’s sentiment,” the release said, adding there was no question of both being abducted for extortion as alleged. Describing the action of the Assam rifles as “unwarranted and uncalled for,” the GPRN/NSCN demanded the AR immediately release its arrested cadres and hand over the seized arms as they were attached with CFSB identity card holder under the agreed cease fire rules between the two entities. The GPRN/NSCN however reiterated its resolve to uphold the political and social values that it stood for despite the “irresponsible action” of the Assam Rifles. “Such hasty actions of Assam Rifles shall not deter GPRN/NSCN from confronting anti-social elements,” it added. It may be recalled, the AR had said that the duo were handed over to the police along with the three activists.
