Even as the Centre on Tuesday announced its decision to resume talks with the NSCN (I-M) - it is learnt that a case was registered by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) last month against top leaders of the outfit for trying to revive its activities in the Northeast. The investigations are in an advanced stage, as per sources. While NIA officials refused to confirm or deny the registration of the case, sources told The Indian Express that the investigators had also zeroed in on money trails connected to their activities. They said the case was handed over to the NIA after “due deliberations” by the Union Home Ministry. “They were planning to carry out something big,” said a senior functionary of the Union Home Ministry, who is aware of the details of the case. Asked if some Chinese agencies, which have in the past also reportedly backed the outfit’s activities, could again be helping it revive itself, the officer said, “Nothing is ruled out, but I can’t share anything else.” NSCN (I-M) reacts Meanwhile, reacting to news report regarding the visit of Isak Chishi Swu and Thuingaleng Muivah to India from April 1-10, the NSCN (I-M) has reiterated that the leadership might consider visiting the country only if they were invited from the prime ministerial level. NSCN (I-M), MIP ‘kilonser’ Vikiye Sumi said so far they have not received such report or communication from the government of India about the two leaders’ visit. He said the NSCN (I-M) has clarified time and again that any proposal should be routed through the Prime Minister’s office and not from the ministry of home affairs. The MIP ‘kilonser’ also said they have nothing to do with greater or smaller Nagalim.
