Over 160 concerned citizens from across the country representing mass based organisations and peace, human rights groups etc. have condemned “the silent but targeted attack by Government of India and its agencies on the Naga civil society leaders and the leaders of the NSCN.”

A joint statement, signed by around 167 citizens, condemned Centre for “illegally and unlawfully” de-boarding secretary general of Naga Peoples’ Movement for Human Rights (NPMHR), Neingulo Krome from a Kolkata-Bangkok bound flight on February 5, by immigration authorities at Kolkata. 
According to them, Krome was told that he was not allowed to travel abroad as per the orders of the ‘Government’. However, no additional clarification was offered nor any list shown with Krome’s name, they said.
“We are certain that by not allowing the leader of one of India’s oldest human rights organisations to travel abroad, GoI has made yet another statement about their intolerance and arrogance,” they added. However, the signatories said they were more concerned that it was also in many ways an open attack on the Naga people’s rights, amidst a 23 year old peace process and ceasefire. 
Condemning the act of the Government, the individuals demanded that Krome be allowed to travel and also demanded that the Government respect the spirit and letter of the peace process and desist from the witch-hunt against Nagas and their leaders.
