: Five activists of the GPRN/NSCN were apprehended along with arms and ammunition by the NSCN (I-M) early Sunday at around 4:30 a.m at Chomi village under Kiphire district but were, however, released at around 3:30 pm after the intervention of the Village Council of Chomi village. The arms and ammunition were retained by the NSCN (I-M). The five GPRN/ NSCN activists were identified as, ‘Leut.’ Lethreyam, ‘Sergeant’ Lachim, ‘Lance Corporal,’ Yimso, ‘Lance Corporal,’ Kiukhum and ‘Khapur’ Rihkhemew. Public Forum Pungro Sub- Division has appealed the higher authority of the NSCN (I-M) to release the arms and ammunition at the earliest, which were seized in order to create a congenial peaceful atmosphere in the society. Speaking to Nagaland Post over phone, the Public Forum Pungro Sub-Division president, S. Kiusumew Yimchungru said that such kind of act would only bring disunity among the various sections of the Naga society. The Forum urged all groups to work in the true spirit of the Covenant Reconciliation signed by their top leaders under the initiative of the Forum for Naga reconciliation (FNR).
