DIMAPUR, FEB 9 (NPN) | Publish Date: 2/9/2020 12:00:21 PM IST

Naga Hoho (NH) and Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) have condemned the February 5 incident where Naga People’s Movement for Human Rights (NPMHR) secretary general Neingolu Krome was off-loaded from a Bangkok bound flight by immigration officials at Kolkata  airport.

NH condemned Government of India (GoI) for the incident, stating that such an arrogant act on the part of GoI was uncalled for and was a violation of human rights. 

If any person for some reason was put under a ban to travel abroad, he or she must be served prior notice. 

But de-boarding was a serious violation of constitutional rights of citizens, it stressed. 

As there was no conflict between GoI and Nagas at this juncture, the hoho demanded that New Delhi must respect the spirit of peace process going on for more than 22 years now to ease the political imbroglio between the India and the Nagas.

NH further cautioned GoI against harassing innocent citizen in the future to maintain peace and harmony among the people.

NSF said it was confounded by the reasoning given by the immigration officials that the government had put a ban on his foreign travels. 

Placing a travel ban on a human rights activist of international repute reeked of the government’s insecurity in its ruthless attempt to stifle the voices of those advocating a just and fair society, the federation said in a statement. 

The federation demanded that the authorities concerned come clean on the reasons why a foreign travel ban had been arbitrarily placed against him and that the same be revoked with immediate effect. Further, the government should desist from the witch-hunt on Naga civil society leaders as any attempt to the contrary would prove counter-productive, it warned.
