Eight persons involved in the kidnapping of one Virender Singh on June 27 in Dimapur have been released from the custody of the GPRN/NSCN while one of the outfit’s ‘under secretary’,ministry of Alee Affairs, identified as Tokivi Yeptho, has been terminated from national service and active primary membership of the NSCN for “aiding and abetting the criminals by providing logistic support in the kidnapping case” . Stating this, the ministry of information and publicity of the GPRN/NSCN disclosed that the eight accused persons were arrested by the GPRN/NSCN Naga Army, after they were released by Dimapur Police which failed to indict them. The MIP said that the Naga Army swung into action and re-arrested the suspects and after prolonged interrogation, the suspects admitted to the crime. The MIP said after thorough interrogation was conducted and confessional statements extracted from all the accused, they were made to sign a bond in presence of Naga Army representatives and guarantors before they were released. The accused were identified as : Tohovi, son of Aghovi of Luzheto Village. (Guarantor Visheto); Ikato son of Late phuheto of Shoxuvi Village.(Guarantor Akiheto); Himato son of Lhokhizhe of Ghukiye Village. (Guarantor Hetoka); Bohoi son of Ihovi of Vikuho Village. (Guarantor Kivito); Hukhevi sonb of Hekhezhe of Nihoto Village. (Guarantor Aghovi); Toshevi son of Vilohoto of Shoxuvi Village. (Guarantor Akiheto); Islam son of Khoritali of Notun Basti, Dimapur. (Guarantor Puri tali) and Khuvito son of Naucha of Tosheyi Village. (Guarantor Khuvishe). The MIP said that the accused were released in sound health/sound mind and on the condition that: they shall never indulge in activities which were against the Naga society and against the Ahza of the GPRN.The accused agreed that they shall report to the GPRN/NSCN authorities as and when summoned and bear any punishment as and when arrested by the GPRN for any criminal offence in future. The agreement also stated that the guarantors shall bear full responsibility if any of the accused failed to abide by the bond agreement. The GPRN/NSCN said it was leaving no stone unturned to free the Naga society from the grip of gangsters, extortionists and kidnappers who continued to cripple the Naga society and tarnish the image of the GPRN. Stating that the recent arrests and release of many anti-social elements from the custody of GPRN/NSCN suggested that there was a greater conspiracy in the state to break the social fabric and push the Naga society into further chaos, the MIP GPRN appealed all right thinking Nagas to confront all divisive elements with firm resolve.
