Tikhir Students’ Union (TSU) on Saturday reiterated its demand for a three-point clarification from 3rd NAP Tuensang commandant in connection with November 9 Waphur incident before November 25.
According to TSU president R. Daniel and TSU executive council chairman Antony Tsangmong, after observing that no clarification on the incident has been made so far nor action initiated against the culprits by the responsible authority, union reaffirmed its earlier demand with “more seriousness as no stone would be left unturned if the justice is not delivered as sought.”
Meanwhile, refuting statements issued by Waphur village chairman Lajumong and head GB Torepkiu, flaying union’s demands, TSU held its ground that its demand was genuine and cautioned the two village heads against issuing “baseless statements”.
Dismissing Lajumong and Torepkiu’s claim that 11 youth traveling on a vehicle with “black flag” charged the jawans while crossing NAP ‘D’ Coy camp, TSU went on to clarify that there was no NAP camp near Waphur village except for few jawans posted at Waphur village gate. Union also stated that mourners had charged the jawans, as was alleged, came without much explanation and maintained that such allegation would only mislead others.
Asserting that its demand was made basing on details highlighted and clarified by the victims, TSU stated the demand “stands irrevocable” and failure to comply would “force” union to take its own course of action as deemed fit.
Further, TSU has informed all presidents and secretaries of its federating units to reach union headquarters for an emergency meeting on November 22.
