The NSCN (I-M) has condemned the raid at the residences of its members, by Assam Rifles at Doyapur under Dhansiripar sub-division, Dimapur district on May 24. In a press statement through its MIP, the NSCN (I-M) alleged that the AR personnel first raided the house of Samuel Lotha, a leacy of union territory, and in his absence recovered a country made pistol. 

The AR raided colonel, Vikato Sumi’s house, also in his absence, when his caretaker, Chingrin was present. During the search, few arms and ammunitions were seized by the AR, MIP stated. The AR team also raided the house of a UT staff, Hekuto Aye and seized some MTRs related to house tax and a broken handmade revolver. NSCN (I-M) stated that the episode continued till the morning of May 25. 
Following the raid, Kheliho (wife of Samuel), Chingrin (caretaker of Col. Vikato’s house) and Hekuto Aye were apprehended by AR and handed over to the police in Dimapur.
In this regard, NSCN (I-M) has expressed displeasure against the conduct by AR, and stated that in the process of running after the NSCN members, the innocent family members should not have been targeted in such a manner “to give them physical and mental torment”.
The NSCN (I-M) also claimed that similar undesirable activities by AR were taking place across other parts of Nagalim like the ones around Hevuto Battalion (Mokokchung), Jadonang Brigade (Tamenglong), Phungtha Brigade (Ukhrul) and Jalukie-Hebron route/area. 
Further, the release stated that when there was a desire to maintain peace in this crucial stage of Indo-Naga peace process, “such an unwarranted nuisance created by AR will only go to bring damnation”. 
“The Indo-Naga peace talk and ceasefire is all to do with respect, trust and mutual understanding and not digging for alienation. But, when AR disconnects itself from this, it became a matter of making Indo-Naga ceasefire a caricature”, the release stated.
