Ghowoto village council has urged the DC, Dimapur to conduct investigation and take action against encroachment of land at Ghowoto village. The GVC in a letter to DC, Dimapur, issued by chairman Phuhoto Zhimo and secretary Luveshe alleged that a group of people, around hundred, armed with sophisticated weapons were camping within its jurisdiction and constructing approach road with bulldozers destroying plantations and fields without the knowledge or approval of the village authority or land owners. They said “illegal encroachers”, claiming the land as their own, were harassing, threatening and restricting villagers from even going to field. The GVC claimed that on June 14 “those illegal encroachers” abducted six villagers from the field and released them only after torturing and forcing them to sign some agreement. They also stated that “house arrest type of situation” and fear psychosis imposed on people by “illegal encroachers” was creating untold miseries and hardship to Ghowoto villagers. In connection with this, the GVC urged the DC to investigate and promptly initiate necessary action before any law and order problem occurred “since the people of Ghowoto and surrounding villages may consider to defend our land from those illegal encroachers on our land should the administration ail to nip the matter in the bud.”
