Following the recovery of a dead body inside the Naga Heritage Village complex, Kisama on April 16 morning, the Merama Youth Organization (MYO) of Phesama village has locked the main gate of the festival venue demanding the state government to respond to their demands. A 40-year old man, who hailed from Phesama village, was found dead at Naga Heritage complex by a person on April 16 morning. 

MYO president Vipu Zashumo told Nagaland Post that they (MYO) had requested the responsible department and state government through representation to maintain better security and regulate proper mechanism to access the venue since 2016 and 2017. He said the villagers witnessed “unethical activities” happening within the complex especially at night as it was opened 24/7. However, he said the government turned a deaf ear to their demand. He cautioned that if the government failed to regulate and maintain proper security, greater problem could happen within the complex in the future.

Zashumo said the villagers were often blamed for damage caused to government properties and for the things stolen by unknown persons inside the complex. He expressed regret for the inconveniences caused to the genuine visitors and tourists visiting the Heritage village.
