GPRN/NSCN has apprehended five persons for collecting taxes with fake coupons and challans in its name in and around Dimapur. It has also ordered two absconding kingpins of the gang to surrender before the GPRN/NSCN authority without which the five persons already in custody would not be released. It was informed that one of the kingpins was also known by the name and style, ‘Big shoe.’ The five persons arrested on three different occasions during the past one week were paraded in front of media persons at GPRN/NSCN Khehoi designated camp. They were identified as Aben Lotha alias Eren, son of Ilio of Shikiy village; Aluho son of Khahoi of Statami village; James son of Tokheho of Lithsami village; Shekheto son of Vikheto of Phushue village and Sukivi of Phushu village. Of the five, the GPRN/NSCN said that Aben Lotha was the leader who printed the fake coupons and gave it to Aluho who in turn distributed it to the other three persons of their gang. The GPRN/NSCN said the gang had printed the coupons from the same printing press where all printing works related to their government were carried out. Stating that such collection of taxes by impersonators was tarnishing its image and also identifying such practices as a threat to their government, the GPRN/NSCN requested the business community to see to it that they do not pay taxes to criminals. The business community was asked to first identify the persons if they were “real workers” (GPRN/NSCN) before paying any taxes. They were also asked to call the ‘chaplee’ secretary at 9856848558 for any confirmation. The GPRN/NSCN said they have also employed their men in various areas to check any bogus tax collectors. In a clear message, the GPRN/NSCN said it would not hesitate to shut down those printing presses in the state which were abetting or harbouring such criminal activities. It asked the proprietors of the printing presses to scrutinize in order to keep a check on whether they were involved in such activities.
