Various organisations have condemned the assault incident that took place on May 6 in Chumoukedima area.

ENSUC: Eastern Nagaland Students’ Union Chumukedima (ENSUC) has strongly condemned the ferocious act of Chumukedima Village Youth Society (CVYS) and termed the act as extremely unacceptable and preposterous. 

ENSUC said any assault on any citizen of the state irrespective of tribe and non-locals would not be tolerated. The union termed the assault on a minor as barbaric and cowardly.

Further, ENSUC has demanded the government to arrest the culprits at the earliest and deliver justice. 

ENWOD: Eastern Nagaland Women Organisation Dimapur (ENWOD) has condemned the incident where a minor was beaten up by some youths of Chumukedima. ENWOD said that no individual or person has the right to take law into his or her own hands. It also expressed displeasure over such discrimination to Eastern people.

Further, ENWOD has appealed the higher authority to take the matter seriously and punish the culprit.

SASU: Seyochung Area Student’s Union (SASU) has expressed dismay over the assault incident adding that the act was an “attempt to murder”. SASU expressed dismay that the Chumukedima village authorities failed to promptly intervene and investigate on the matter thus allowing the incident to happen. SASU said it would not accept an apology of organization or society on behalf of those perpetrators after inflicting huge pain and agony upon the innocent victim unless justice was delivered.

AST: Akehta Sangtamlarü Thsingmujang (AST) has strongly condemned the recent incident and added that it was deeply disturbed by the unacceptable and egoistic behaviours of Chumoukedima Village Youth Organisation.

Further, AST has urged upon the higher authority to thoroughly investigate and set a precedent so that in the near future such inhumanly act would never repeat in the society or to any section of people.

DKSSU:Dimapur-Kohima Sangtam Students’ Union (DKSSU) has vehemently condemned the uncivilized, cowardly acts and high handedness of the CVYS and has also appealed the concerned authority to book the culprits/perpetrators at the earliest. CVYS said it thoroughly went through the statements issued by both the parties. However, it said no matter degree/frequency of the nature of the crime be (as alleged by CVYS), assaulting an individual to an unconscious and dying state was an act of sheer cowardice.

DKSSU also said that it does not acknowledge any of the undertakings/agreements whatsoever done on that fateful night between CVYS and John Tsulise Sangtam. 

STD: Sangtamlarü Thsingmüjang Dimapur (STD) has condemned the manhandling of two brothers by members of the CVYS.

STD said the incident furthermore exposes the lack of inculcation of Naga culture of respect, particularly towards the elderly.  STD said no vigilante groups have any rights to use force on any member of the public for any reason whatsoever. 

Further, STD has demanded that culprits be immediately arrested and put behind the bars in the interest of equity and justice. 

LASU: Longmatra Area Students Union (LASU) has condemned the unwarranted assault on two brothers by CVYS. The union said it was transfixed and horrified by the senseless act of violence while the entire Naga society has been longing for peaceful coexistence.

Further, the union has urged the concerned authority to exercise the right law of action against the perpetrators and deliver justice to the victims.

LDSU: Longkhim Division Students’ Union (LDSU) said it was appalled, pensive and exasperated at the incident whereby members of CVYS thrashed two brothers. LDSU has condemned the reprobate behaviour of CVYS members adding that such act has no place in the modern society. 

Further, the union has urged the law enforcing agencies to deliver justice by booking the culprits at the earliest. 

USSC: United Sangtam Students’ Conference (USSC) said it was distressed by the alleged attack by some members of CVYS.

USSC also condemned the CVYS for taking law in their will and turning their office into “Kangaroo Court” inflicting severe injury from their office in this modern world.

USSU further stated that peace would never prevail in the civilised society if such organisations/society meant to protect and provide justice to its people behaves like a “gang of hooligans”.

CASU: Chare Area Students Union (CASU) said it was appalled to learn the ghastly incident and has condemned the vicious attack on two brothers without cogent ground. CASU condemned the inhuman treatment towards the fellow Nagas by members of CVYDS and has sought justice for the family.

ARSU: Amahator Range Students Union (ARSU) has vehemently condemned the barbaric act of members of CVYS and said that it was pained by such act of “hooliganism and attempt to murder”.

Further, the union has asked the competent authority and law enforcing agency to book the culprit at the earliest.

ENPUD: Eastern Nagaland Peoples’ Union Dimapur (ENPUD) has strongly condemned the physical assault on two sons and reiterated that there was no place for such a crime in a civilized society.  ENPUD said it was dismayed that CVYS has very belatedly sought an “unconditional apology” with utmost regret to the aggrieved family. The fact that this apology letter has come after the lapse of so many days after the incident, ENPUD said it only adds insult to injury rather than trigger the will to forgive and forget the “unconditional apology” sought.  ENPUD said seeking unconditional apology without giving befitting punishment to the culprit was simply a mockery of the unconditional apology sought. 

While tolerance has gone beyond its limits, ENPUD said it could only hope that in future better sense of civility prevail for the greater good and well being of all Nagas.
