DC Mokokchung Lithrongla G. Chishi Wednesday held a meeting with Ao Senden at DC’s conference hall in relation to the proposed 12 hr bandh called by the AO Senden June 30 in Mokokchung district. At the meeting, Lithrongla said district administration would deploy administrative officers on magisterial duty and adequate police forces in the entire district to ensure that no untoward incident occur during the bandh.
She also informed the Senden to exempt all essential services including medical patients and attendants going to hospitals or passing the district from any place from the purview of the bandh saying such services cannot be stopped, DIPR stated.
Ao Senden president Lendi said the Senden would make all efforts to see that the 12-hour bandh pass off peacefully.
Meanwhile, Naga People’s Movement for Human Rights (NPMHR), has expressed dismay over escalating violence and oppression such as sexual abuse, psychological torture and assault on women in Naga areas. NMPHR covenor (Nagaland) Atoho Kiho also drew attention to the May 27 attempted assassination on Imtila Jamir in Kohima and the memorandum issued to the NSCN (I-M) collective leadership by he Joint Action Committee of the Ao Senden alleging that one of the accused was being shielded by the outfit. Drawing attention to a recent statement issued by ‘lt. col’ S. Shipo, PRO Naga army who promised that befitting punishment would be meted to any Naga army personnel involved in the crime. NPMHR urged the ‘competent authorities in the NSCN/GPRN’ to comply with the demand for justice as sought by the Ao Senden JAC.
NPMHR also encouraged women who are victims of crimes to approach authorities, especially in cases of sexual abuse to facilitate justice and also seek free legal help provided for women victims under the state Act 1987.
However, it expressed shock that the Court in Dimapur has not received a single complaint relating to violence against women, as per a report from D. Hokato Swu. It also said unofficial reports said out of 20 or so instances of rape and sexual abuse under Diphupar the last few years, only two FIRs were have been lodged.
