Working Committee (WC), Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) Monday said the “brutal killing of six Naga sons” near Nginu Village in Longding district, Arunachal Pradesh by the Indian Army was “a perversion of military code of conduct in a conflict situation.” 

WC through its media cell, said the “gallant men” were murdered in cold blood and as the plan was “to take no prisoners and kill at any cost”. WC said the “Indian Army has, by the very act, transgressed ethical and moral treatment of enemies even though there is ceasefire and political talks.” On the other hand, WC reminded the Indian Army commanders, that 78 Indian Army personnel were captured by Naga freedom fighters on March 24, 1956, at Satakha, under Sumi Region. 
However, it said, not one of them was harmed even though it was in the middle of armed conflict. 
WC said though the captured personnel deserved “death by hail of bullets and grenade explosions” yet the prisoners were released and later reached their homes and loved ones safely. However, only their arms were taken, added WC. 
WC also reminded that in 1960, a Dakota cargo plane was shot down at Phor village in Pochury Region and all nine crew members were captured by Naga Army. WC said their lives spared and they too “reached home safely to tell the tale.” 
WC said the “latest inhuman killing” has hurt every Naga worth his salt and that the “sadistic behaviour of Indian army is a war crime.” 
WC also alleged that the six “were slaughtered and their dead bodies were not treated with respect”. WC said though Naga groups may be “divided by nomenclatures, ideologies and political beliefs but all are Nagas by blood, sharing same history, political right and one future.” 
Stating that it was “deeply hurt by the slaughter of six Naga youth, ”WC prayed that God Almighty accept their supreme sacrifices and grant solace to their souls. It also conveyed its deepest condolences to the bereaved families.
