A team of NSF, led by its president Mutsikhoyo Yhobu, Thursday evening had gone to Golaghat to meet All Assam Students’ Union (ASSU) representatives, to discuss the issue. Talking to Nagaland Post over the phone late night, Yhobu said they were yet to meet ASSU representatives. The outcome of their meeting could not be ascertained as the ASSU team was yet to reach the meeting venue at the time of filing this report. He also confirmed that NSF team had a copy of the suspension order of the police officer, since ASSU had demanded proof for action taken against the responsible. It maybe mentioned that the eco-blockade against Nagaland started from September 18.
In a follow-up to cabinet’s decision to initiate stringent action against anybody found guilty of excesses over September 15 Murphuloni incident, the state government today suspended one police officer in connection with the case. The state government on September 21 last, in its special state cabinet meeting, had expressed regret over Murphuloni incident, for alleged excesses committed by personnel of 12 NAP (IR) Bn, ‘B’ Coy while dealing with the agitating students of Assam.
When contacted by Nagaland Post over the phone, the state police PRO, S.T. Sangtam said the government had issued suspension order of one assistant commandant of 12 NAP (IR) Bn, the commander of ‘B’ Company”.
Nagaland home minister Imkong Imchen told PTI the commander of the ‘Bravo’ company of 12th IR battalion, which allegedly fired on All Assam Students Union volunteers on September 15 injuring 20 of them, was suspended. “We are very sorry for the unfortunate incident which attracted the government’s serious attention and we are thoroughly investigating it through a high-level probe committee,” he said.
