Claiming that it has confirmed the arrest of Anthony Shing –NSCN (I-M)’s foreign affairs head – at Kathmandu airport by sleuths of government of India, the Naga International Support Center (NISC) Monday demanded his immediate and unconditional release.
The NISC in an e-mailed statement from Amsterdam reiterated its claim that, Anthony, after clearing immigration at Kathmandu airport, was reportedly apprehended by agents of government of India.
Stating that it, along with numerous other Human Rights organizations, strongly protested against this “abduction”, the NISC said it was a violation of the ceasefire between the government of India and the Naga People. It also protested that the action of government of Nepal, which it claimed assisted the “Indian agents.”
Anthony Shing was on his way to Delhi via Kathmandu where he was scheduled to have meetings and to meet friends, it said, and added that next day he was scheduled to go to Delhi and take part in peace talks.
Further, the NISC criticized government of Nepal for allowing the government of India to apprehend Anthony Shing. NISC further condemned, what it described as the “snake like forked tongue behavior of the Government of India” as it violated the ceasefire agreement while assuring the Nagas that it was sincere in expediting the talks. It further called upon the International Community to raise their voices against this violation of Human Rights, Indigenous Rights and Ceasefire in every forum of the United Nations, the European Community and ASEAN.
