Public Action Committee (PAC) of the Naga Council Dimapur has warned the Naga Political Groups (NPGs) that it will be compelled to take necessary action, as their requests to act against erring cadres involved in extortion activities etc. seemed to have fallen on deaf ears.

In a joint statement, PAC convenor Vekhosayi Nyekha and co-convenor Ghokheto Chophy highlighted the August 1, 2018 incident where “NSCN (U) cadres and group” in a “pre-planned” heist snatched Rs. 600000 from Wilson Kenye of Mathikru, Neizolo of Jessami and Athot Tangkhul at gun point.
Citing the FIR filed at Diphupar PS, PAC said the victims who had come to Dimapur to purchase a Dumper truck, were asked to wait at the Agri Expo site area from where they were robbed.
However, after the FIR was lodged on August 2, 2018 by Kenye, the latter was arrested and detained at Nagarjan by one ‘maj.’ Toishe of the NSCN (I-M), PAC said. The victim was also asked to pay Rs. 600000 as ransom for his release, PAC added. The family members of Kenye arranged the amount and paid in two instalments on August 22, 2018 and September 9, 2018 to ‘maj.’ Toishe, PAC said.
Interestingly, PAC said Dimapur police on November 11, 2018 arrested five persons from Agri Expo site carrying out the same modus operandi of looting on the pretext of selling used vehicles. These were the same persons who looted Kenye and two others from the same spot, PAC said, as Kenye also identified them at Diphupar PS.
PAC stated that the following individuals were arrested-- jt. secy. NSCN (U), Obeto K. Awomi from Usutomi village and resident of Thilixu village; NSCN (U) ‘maj.’ Phusheto Aye from Vihokhu village and resident of Mishikito village; u/secy. of NSCN (U), Richard Achumi from Alaphumi village and residing at New colony Burma Camp; Bendangtoshi Lusangri of Changki village and resident of Burma camp and Mughato Swu of Mishilmi village residing at Burma camp.
While condemning such criminal activities committed by NPGs on innocent citizens, PAC has asked those responsible to return Rs. 12,00000 to Kenye and party through the PAC.
Meanwhile, PAC has once again strongly appealed to the NPGs to act and deliver justice. It said that when the NPGs were supposed to work for the Naga public, such type of destructive activities were detrimental not only to nation building but also the NPGs.
PAC also condemned the illegal collection of money by NSCN (K), who had recently joined the peace talks. It said that the NSCN (K) were “on a rampage in threatening the business community.” Therefore, PAC has appealed to authorities of the respective NPGs to discipline their cadres who were demeaning the cause of the Nagas.
