NPMHR and Dimapur Youth Organisation (DYO) have appealed for safe and early release of CDPO Mangkolemba, T. Shashi who was abducted by miscreants on June 5 from Assam.
NPMHR has expressed “deep concern” over the abduction of CDPO Mangkolemba, T. Shashi and appealed for his safe release and the driver.
A statement from the NPMHR secretariat also said it extended solidarity to CANSSEA and demand the government of Nagaland to speedily pursue the tracking down of the miscreants involved and to facilitate the safe release of the duo. It appealed the chief minister of Assam and the civil society organisations in the neighbouring state to intervene to seek the safe release of the officer on humanitarian ground, who was said to be a patient of hypertension and diabetics.
Condemning the prevalent culture of abduction and extortion in the region, NPMHR called for stamping out such activities cooperatively with wider debate, discussion and campaign through more mass awareness.
It said the Naga society should collectively stand up together to shoulder the responsibility of removal of the “evil culture based” on selfishness and avarice which has eaten into the society’s foundation.
NPMHR appealed to all sections of the society to fight the evils of abduction and extortion culture and spread public awareness to jointly participate in the campaign to end abduction and extortion which remained an abhorrence, negating the growth of a progressive, accountable and violence free society.
DYO has appealed to the chief minister Neiphiu Rio for more initiatives by involving necessary government agencies for the immediate and safe release of the abducted CDPO and his driver.
In a press release DYO general secretary, also urged the Assam government agencies and the people of Assam to cooperate and help Nagaland government agencies to trace and release the official safely.
Condemning the incident, DYO further appealed the people of Assam to understand the sentiments of Naga people so that the good relationship between Assam and Nagaland do not derail by such incident.
