Reports of some Meiteis in and around Dimapur and Kohima fleeing Nagaland after the May 9 incident have been refuted by police.
According to reports, Meiteis, fearing backlash after the assault on two Naga Hoho office bearers and a member of the FNR at Hotel Grandeur Kohima, were fleeing Kohima and Dimapur.It was said that apprehension arose as rumours indicate that those involved were suspected to be “Manipuris”.
SP Dimapur, Liremo Lotha, said some individuals may have left due to their own apprehensions but added there was no truth to the rumours about exodus of Meiteis from Dimapur. There were reports that a few Meitei lecturers have left Kohima including some DDK staff.
SP Kohima, V. Mero told this Reporter over telephone that there was no truth to the reports. He said only a business establishment run by a Meitei has been closed down since the May 6 incident. Apart from this, there were no such reports, he said.
DGP, K. Kire, also said there was no report of any such exodus. Kire said strict instructions have been issued to all SPs to ensure maximum security in their districts, particularly in areas having Meitei population.
On the identity of the culprits involved in the May 9 assault case, Kire said, the identities were yet to be established. He said the identity of the owner of the Alto car used by the miscreants has been established. Kire said Police SIT has been formed to investigate and nab the culprits.
