An employee of a business firm M/s Symbios Creations Pvt. Ltd, was reportedly kidnapped on Wednesday by two miscreants but rescued and the kidnappers caught by West PS Dimapur team under ASI Vikishe Chophy.

Business Association of Nagas (BAN), Dimapur Ao Youth Organisation (DAYO) and Aoyimti Lanur Telongjem (ALT) have condemned the kidnapping allegedly by the cadres of Khango-led NSCN (K) while at work in Midland area, Dimapur on August 26, 2020.

BAN said “such a criminal act was uncalled for “ when Naga businesses were affected by the pandemic and were struggling to bounce back. BAN reminded that Symbios was founded by a hard working Naga businessman. 

BAN appreciated the swift action of Dimapur police led by ASI Vikishe Chophy in rescuing the victim and apprehending the perpetrators. 

BAN further appealed to the NNPGs not to disturb businesses run by Nagas as most businesses were trying to survive during these trying times.

DAYO: Dimapur Ao Youth Organisation (DAYO) through its media cell said that “this barbaric act is a crime of the highest order and deserves to be dealt in the most severe manner.” According to DAYO,  “such dastardly act” was totally unacceptable and had no place in a civilised society especially at a time when the entire mankind was fighting Covid-19 pandemic.

 DAYO has appealed to the law enforcing agencies and other responsible authorities of the state to award exemplary punishment to the perpetrators, which should act as deterrent to others daring to indulge in similar crimes. 

DAYO also lauded West PS team led by ASI Vikishe Chophy for rescuing the kidnapped victim and arresting two persons involved.

DAYO also affirmed that it would “no longer tolerate any criminally motivated actions” and leave no stones unturned “to identify and confront any criminals that challenge the very existence of our community in Dimapur.”

ALT: Expressing outrage over the incident, Aoyimti Lanur Telongjem (ALT) termed the kidnapping as criminal and unjustifiable. 

In a press release, ALT president Imyangluba Longkumer called upon every rational citizen to condemn and take “energetic actions to stem this scourge.” 

ALT also lauded the police department for rescuing the victim and arresting the kidnappers.
