Father of Kumar Saswat, who has been accused of circulating vulgar MMS of a Naga girl, has written to SP Dimapur seeking protection of his son from murder or harm either during his judicial custody or release from custody in Dimapur at the hands of few people and their “Naga insurgent friends.”
Shiva Jatan Thakur, a Professor in Patna University and the father of the accused in a faxed statement to the SP also detailed about his “abortive kidnapping” on April 14 upon arrival at Mayur Hotel Dimapur at about 8: 15 p.m. Thakur said he learnt that five youth Naga militants came to the hotel at about 8 p.m and went upstairs to his looking for him “with obvious intent to kidnap me to be killed to ensure the judicial custody of my son at Dimapur for ever in the aftermath of my death to help him out of jail.” However, the Professor said he was out for dinner at that time. Thakur said he checked out of the hotel in panic at about 8:30 p.m and rushed to the house of his advocate for shelter where the OC East PS, having learnt of the incident came to him at about 11 p.m. He said the OC enquired about the incident and asked whether he wished to lodge formal complaint but declined on purpose to avoid imminent threat to his life at Dimapur to which he was literally unfamiliar. “In order to escape the fatal threat to my life, I booked Air teicket against emergency quota on April 15 and flew to Kolkata,” he said.
Thakur recalled that on April 3 also at about 4:30 p.m, two persons identified as Akum friend of the Naga girl and Sumika barged into the East PS and slapped Kumar Saswat in his presence during the police remand threatening, “I will shoot you the moment you come out of jail. You will never get out of Dimapur.” Thakur said that the OC on learning about the incident promptly called them to the police station and made them tender written apology for their criminal conduct.
On the basis of the circumstantially connected sequence of events, the professor said he has good reason to apprehend that Akum, Sumika and their henchmen (Naga militants) were hell-bent on murdering or harming his son solely to avenge the inimical relationship with his ex-girlfriend (Naga girl), the complainant.
In view of the events that have unfolded, the father of the accused has asked the police to ensure proper protection of his son at the hands of Akum, Sumika and their Naga insurgent friends.
