Mortal remains of late Tsovori Rose, “angh, Chakhesang Province” of the erstwhile “Naga National Freedom Movement”, who was killed by Indian Army in 1961 and buried at New Jandalashung under Wokha district were exhumed Friday for his last journey to native village, Thipüzumi village, Phek. Late Tsovori, one of the pioneer leaders of Chakhesang community and the then “angh” of the NNC was killed along with “captain” Vatsühi of Kikrüma village, by Indian armed forces on March 19, 1961 while attending a “federal meeting” at Hongku, present Jandalashung-B. Following a long search for the five decades old burial place, family members have found the spot and exhumed the mortal remains of the two. Thipüzumi Welfare Union Dimapur (TWUD) organized a prayer service Thursday to pay homage to slain NNC leader and his security officer, at the family home at Purana Bazar, Dimapur. At the prayer service, Patkai Christian College Dimapur principal Husazü Epao delivered a brief history of the life and achievements of late Tsovori. The mortal remains of the two would be taken to the respective native villages on Saturday for the final rites. Funeral service for late Tsovori Rose would be held Saturday at Thipüzumi village at 11 am.
