Nihoto Village Council accuse ‘kilonser’ for assault and threat

Dimapur, March 11 (MExN): The Nihoto Village Council today accused “deputy home kilonser” of the GPRN/NSCN of assaulting Head GB P Viyiho and threatening to take the life of the village leader. The functionary is also accused of encroaching about 120 feet of Nihoto village’s land.
The village gave the accounts of the alleged incident in a press release today. On March 10, Head GB P Viyiho had gone to Diphu Riverside, which is in the jurisdiction of Nihoto Village, to check his laborers collecting sand and gravel. The GPRN/NSCN arrived with three fully-armed bodyguards and demanded the GB to stop collecting the sand and gravel from the area which the underground cadre claimed to be his.  The GB’s laborers were collecting sand and gravel from an area well within the jurisdiction of the village, the council said.
 The GB tried to clarify this to the said Hokato but the latter instead got infuriated and started assaulting the GB.
The council said – “The deputy kilonser who is expected to be a responsible person got hold of P Viyiho by his neck and threatened him with dire consequences even up to the extend of threat on his life. It is Hokato who has encroached about 120 feet of land belonging to Nihoto village and now with the might of gun he is trying to force the village authority of Nihoto village to demarcate the boundary according to his liking.”
Armed with weapons, the council said, he threatened to kill the Bead GB stating, “he is an underground who kills people.” The village council further stated that the said functionary even threatened to challenge the founder of the village P Nihoto Chishi in what was claimed as “court of GPRN/NSCN government.” Such act of intimidation and ‘goondaism’ has no place in civilized society, the council said, and has urged civil society to condemn such acts. The GPRN/NSCN is also asked to take action against its cadre.
