A local trader was allegedly assaulted by one GPRN/NSCN “deputy kilonser” and his men after he refused to pay “personal tax” of Rs.200 Saturday.
The victim, identified as one Tokiye Sumi (30), of Nunumi village, who runs a CD shop (Music planet) at M.P Road, Dimapur, has been admitted to Zion Hospital for treatment.
Talking to newsmen from his ICU bed, the victim said today morning at around 10 a.m. some of GPRN/NSCN deputy kilonser’s men came to the shop and took away his staff, identified as one Raja, along with shop key to an undisclosed location.
At around 11 a.m. when the victim had gone to his shop he discovered that the shop was closed. Subsequently, the victim said he received a call from the accused asking him to appear and reclaim his staff along with shop key.
So, when he had gone to that place, the deputy kilonser’s men reportedly got hold of him and started assaulting him after blindfolding and tying his hands.
After bashing him severely he was set free, the victim said, and claimed that the “deputy kilonser” threatened him not to go public about the incident otherwise he would be shot dead.
According to victim, the GPRN/NSCN “deputy kilonser”, reportedly in-charge of CD shops and provides security to shops, last month had asked for “personal tax” of Rs.200.
However, he refused to comply with the demand, saying since he pays “government tax” and was a local, he did not need to pay the “personal tax,” the victim said.
NUD condemns assault
Meanwhile, the Nunumi Union Dimapur (NUD) has “strongly” condemned the “inhuman and barbaric act of GPRN/NSCN “deputy kilonser” Viniho, who beat up Tokiye Sumi “mercilessly and brought to Zion hospital in unconscious state.”
Stating that victim’s life has been threatened if he went public about the incident, the NUD president N Vihokhu Sumi and secretary Toyikhu Sumi, in a joint statement, cautioned that, in case of “abnormal death” of the victim, Viniho would be held responsible.
“These act must be condemned by all the peace loving people of our land,” they said.
Further, the NUD has demanded that culprit be brought to book and take action as per the law of the land.
