Meanwhile, NU registrar of Dr. P.H. Naik in a notification informed about the constitution of a three-member committee to verify the incident that occurred on the night of September 4. The committee is to examine the issues relating to the coming and going by the paramilitary forces to the NU campus and submit its report within seven days. The notification also added that the Administrative Section Incharge is to convene a meeting of the committee and record the minutes/findings of the committee.
Meanwhile, the PGSU Kohima Campus strongly condemned the “irresponsible act” of university authorities namely, VC and registrar. It also asked the paramilitary force as to why they were involving in the university matters when they were only meant to protect and safeguard the country.
The PGSU NUCK expressed for university bus accident on September 4.
The NSF also expressed strong resentment towards the concerned authority at Lumami headquarters over the September 4 incident when the students were having a peaceful demonstration. The NSF condemned the presence army personnel inside the university campus at midnight and questioned the authority whether such forces were required to threaten the “innocent students.” The Federation said on many instances the actions of the “Friends of the Hill People” were not acknowledged as their attitude and actions have always aggravated the interest of the Naga people. It warned that the concerned authority would solely be held responsible if any such untoward incident was meted out against the interest of the students’ community. Further, the NSF urged the VC and its administration to immediately fulfill the demands of the university students.
