NSWON: National Socialist Women Organization of Nagalim (NSWON) while condemning the murder of Ramchanphy on October 24 said that Delhi authorities were trying to invent excuses to protect the culprit.
NSWON, in its executive meeting, took strong exception to the racist attitude of Delhi authorities. NSWON in a press note said by proving the culprit as a pervert, Delhi authority thought it would save the image of their institutions while on the contrary, questioning the mental state of the culprit in such obvious case of homicide was a deliberate perversion of the course of justice. It also questioned “If this is not a case of racism, what is? When it is already established beyond doubt that Ramchanphy was killed as she struggled against the rapist and when the accused himself had confessed to the crime, what more evidence would any humane law ask for further investigation in order to convict the culprit?”
NSWON further said “You have killed thousands of our men, raped hundreds of our women and children and justified your actions by giving us such provoking names as barbarians, insurgents, rebels, terrorists, renegades, extortionists. All forms of injustice sown by you continue to prowl in our land. Naga women can never forgive the Indians!”

He said rape and murder of Naga girls took place outside Nagaland very often, especially in Delhi where they are engaged in doing jobs as getting a government job in Nagaland was beyond their dreams and private firms like sugar and paper mills were not working as the government had not been managed.
