‘People’s Army of Nagaland’ (Naga Army) of the GPRN/NSCN has said that the reconciliation process among the various Naga political groups has scaled down fratricidal killings. However, taking advantage of the prevailing peaceful environment, the GPR/NSCN said criminal gangs have mushroomed especially in and around Dimapur and Kohima causing wide-spread panic and discontentment among the business community and public. ‘Maj Gen’ Niki Sumi, ‘People’s Army of Nagaland’ GPRN/NSCN in a statement said kidnapping, extortion, threat, intimidation etc have become rampant and intolerable. He pointed out that most of these activities were being masterminded by camp deserters, discharged cadres etc in connivance with vested national workers including underground groups from neighbouring states. He also said that the ire was being directed at the GPRN/NSCN. In-order to take stock of the deteriorating situation, Niki said the Naga Army authority would be compelled to initiate stringent actions against any groups or individuals found to be engaged in such nefarious anti-people’s activities. He said activities of groups like NNC/FGN, UPDS, PULF, DHD etc have become an issue of concern, as these groups were primarily involved in collections, extortions and kidnappings. The GPRN/NSCN warned that immediate arrest and punitive action including “timeless hard labour imprisonment” would be enforced regardless of whichever groups they might belong to. The GPRN/NSCN also notified its counterparts to rein in their cadres and to maintain pre-reconciliation status-quo with regard to “sphere of influence” and to officially notify the concerned authority in the event of any task to be undertaken in its domain. “This suggestion is being mooted in order to avoid any mis-understanding, confrontation and infringement of reconciliation covenant while clamping down on anti-national activities,” Niki said. The GPRN/NSCN also asked the public and business communities to properly verify the authenticity of any groups or individuals before paying taxes or donations. “Blaming the GPRN/NSCN squarely would not only aggravate the hardships but encourage the criminals to further their activities,” he said. Further, Niki said it was brought to the knowledge of the GPRN/NSCN authority that some national workers were being engaged in exacting commission from the business people in the guise of rescuing them from the clutches of criminals. Stating that such practice has resulted in the lack of co-operation and co-ordination against anti-social drive, Niki informed that only such officials or commands assigned by the GPRN/NSCN should be consulted on such matters. The GPRN/NSCN informed that the notification would come into effect in three days time from the date of publication.
