Spokesperson for GPRN/NSCN president’s office, P. Tikhak has alleged that the NSCN (I-M) after a brief gun battle on Tuesday at Hashik- Noknu village in Eastern Nagaland, fired a mortar shell on the villagers killing many civilians including women and children. Of the total 120-130 houses nearly 80-90 houses have been completely gutted and brought down to ashes, he alleged. Tikhak said even the granaries were not spared.
He lamented that the Eastern Nagaland which was till recently so peaceful was now boiling every minute with mortar shells, grenade launcher and bullets. He claimed that people were so shocked that they cannot think what to do and what not to. Stating that life has been brought to a complete halt and paralyzed completely, people were undergoing acute trauma with “all hell breaking loose on them.” “Sadly, after a gap of 23 (twenty three) years, the Eastern Nagaland is witnessing such a highly volatile situation today and there should be no doubt that, the IM has made use of the Reconciliation process to re-enter into Eastern Nagaland,” Tikhak said.
CSS okays flush out in AP
Meanwhile, Centre has given the green signal to the Army to flush out armed cadres of the NSCN (I-M) and NSCN(K) from Tirap-Changlang sector in Arunachal Pradesh, reports the Times of India. The report said Army will launch a major offensive to flush the NSCNs from the eastern sector of Arunachal where their cadres have been involved in major extortion and arms procurement activities. The report said the final nod for this was given by Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) on Tuesday.
Sources said, CCS discussed in particular, incidents where armed NSCN (I-M) cadres were found extorting money.
Further, taking a dig at the NSCN (I-M) leadership, Tikhak said Isak and Muivah whose hands were stained with the blood of innocent Nagas would “definitely have to pay the price for the crime they have committed.”
He said it was sad that many Naga people were still supporting a group of gangster which was “hell bent in sucking the innocent Naga blood.”
“Muivah is nothing but a self proclaimed hero. How on earth, can a man claims responsibility as a savior for others when he himself cannot visit his own hometown Somdal? How can a liar claim to have the mandate of the Naga people?” he questioned. Tikhak said Muivah must repent before God and humankind for the crimes he has committed. “He must seek God’s love and instill a sense of fear to God. After all God is the creator of this universe and he is just among one of His creation. He should not consider himself above God,” Tikhak added.
