DIMAPUR, DEC 1 (NPN) | Publish Date: 12/1/2018 11:50:22 AM IST

Public Action Committee (PAC) of Naga Council Dimapur, at an emergency meeting on December 1 at NCD office, has reviewed its decision to call off the proposed bandh in Dimapur in view of the failure of the authorities to book the main culprits involved in the November 20 Riven Honda showroom firing incident.

PAC Convenor Vekhosayi Nyekha and co-convenor K.Ghokheto Chophy, in a joint statement informed that the authorities have been given five days to arrest the main culprits failing which it will call for a 12-hour Dimapur bandh from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. on December 7,2018.

PAC explained that it had called off its earlier proposed bandh “in good faith” by believing that the arrest of suspects belonging to NSCN (I-M) would lead to arrest of the main culprits. However, PAC lamented that the main culprits remain at large so mere arrest of some suspects would not deter it from calling for the bandh.

At the meeting has been convened with tribe hohos, Naga councillors, DCCI, BAN, DUCCF, GBs and Naga Women Hoho Dimapur on December 4 at the NCD office at 3 p.m. to deliberate on the bandh and course of action.

Meanwhile, the PAC expressed appreciation of the timely arrest of Brownson Tangkhul (35) and Sunikiu Tikhir (23) of the NSCN (I-M) who were involved in the kidnap of some businessmen of Dimapur . PAC also “vehemently condemned” the kidnap of K.K. Transport Agency and another staff allegedly by NSCN (I-M) on December 1,2018. PAC urged the NPG involved to immediately release the kidnapped victims.
