The GPRN/NSCN has said that even before the ink on the paper signed by leaders of three Naga political groups at the September Summit had dried, one NSCN(I-M) activist identified as ‘Lt.Col’ Yarteo Tangkhul physically tortured ‘Khapur’ Ahoshe of Tokugha village on October 14.
According to the GPRN/NSCN, Ahoshe was dragged by ‘Lt. Col’ Yarteo Tangkhul on Thursday at around 7.30 a.m. while on “govt duty” at Chumukedima .
It alleged Yarteo inflicted hours of “inhuman torture” on Ahoshe and allegedly “cursed and accused” Sumi tribe in particular and the GPRN/NSCN, using “most demeaning expletives”.
It said Ahoshe was also forced to sign a “bond of agreement” that he ceased to work for “the nation”, and warned that a huge fine would be imposed if he rejoined “national service”.
The MIP declared that “ any agreement forced under death threat stands null and void.”
Questioning Yarteo as to why he was “determined to destroy the covenant of reconciliation” among the Nagas, the MIP said men like him were “harbingers of misfortune to their own families, relatives and community”. It regretted that such “desolate men with barren human feelings” still claimed to be officers serving the nation.
Stating that the Joint Working Group (JWG) had met again on October 9 , to further strengthen the “covenant of reconciliation”, the MIP said that the GPRN/NSCN had so far exhibited “great patience and commitment” to the covenant.
In this regard, it appealed to the FNR to verify whether a group within the NSCN (I-M), oblivious to the “covenant of reconciliation” existed.
The MIP said if FNR was accepted by all rank and files of NSCN (I-M), then “Lt. Col.” Yarteo Tangkhul be brought to justice for hurting the sentiments of Nagas who were committed to the “covenant of reconciliation”.
It also appealed to the Tangkhul Naga Long and various Tangkhul civil societies in and outside Nagaland, to act against those who continued to “tarnish the image and integrity of peace loving Tangkhuls”.
