NSCN (I-M) on Friday awarded capital punishment (NSCN (I-M) press statement on page 4) to Imtikumzuk Jamir, 32 years son of Lima Temsu Jamir of Mongsenyimti village, Mokokchung district and Hetoi Chishi alias Hetobu , aged 32, son of late Lhojumo of Zutovi village, Dimapur district, both of who were found guilty by the Peoples Revolutionary Court (PRC) of NSCN/GPRN for their involvement in the March 25 gang rape case at Darogapathar (Narhabari), Dimapur. Their bodies were recovered by the Wokha police from a place between Wokha and Bokajan, Assam, with bullet marks on their heads, Saturday morning. Police said they were informed about the bodies by an unknown caller. Police ascertained the identities of the bodies through the names written in a piece of paper found in their respective pockets. Two empty cases of AK-47 were recovered from the site. Police said the Ao community in Wokha claimed the body of Imtikumzuk and transported it to Mokokchung while the body of Hetoi alias Hetobu, was buried by Sümi community, Wokha. Meanwhile, the MIP/GPRN in a statement stated that Imtikumzuk, Hetoi and two others (names withheld) “all habitual and hardened criminals”, stormed into the house of the victims residing at Darogapathar, gang raped the daughter at gun point and fled with Rs. 16,000 along with some jewelleries. It said Hetoi also fired two shots in the air with his sten carbine The MIP said that from the evidence so admitted, the Court of GPRN came to know that all the culprits have been constantly involved in criminal activities like looting, murder, robbery, theft, drugs trafficking/smuggling, vehicle lifting, pickpocket etc. “Therefore, in view of the nature of crime committed by the perpetrators, the GPRN... hereby awarded capital punishment to the aforementioned two arrested accused persons on 17th July 2009,” the NSCN (I-M) said. It may be mentioned that other two accused Pinato and Kaghato are in police custody while another accused Sabo Sangtam is still absconding. Massive public outcry by public and strong demands from NGOs to deny bail and also award severe punishment to the rapist-gang has made the case sensitive. The accused in police custody will soon be facing trial in the court, the sources added.
