After the brutal murder of a Naga who was employed in a restaurant in Chennai during mid-July, the number of victims from Nagaland in the city has risen to five during the recent years. It was learnt that there are many people from Nagaland working in various firms in Tamil Nadu and many more across other cities.
In the most recent case, three persons involved in the murder of late Kaboto hailed from Assam. They were identified as - Jayanta Doss(19), Ranjith(19) and Aloke(19)- and had been sharing a room with the victim at AGD colony, Velacherry in Chennai. It was learnt that all of them were employed in a restaurant in Chennai.
It was reported that, the accused persons had murdered the victim due to some “misunderstanding” and were arrested when they tried to flee. The NCF Chennai performed funeral rites before the body of the victim was buried in Chennai .
Pastor Wapangtoshi revealed that lack of employment at home has driven hundreds of Naga youths to seek employment in other cities. He said most work under poor working conditions and also hardly earn enough as salary.
Highlighting the hardships and sometimes indignities faced by job seekers from Nagaland in other metro cities, Pastor Wapang informed all intending job seekers to get registered with NCF or Students Union in Chennai. 
He pointed out that in almost all cases, the Naga community were unaware of the presence of the victims when they went to work outside the state.
