UNC condemns Sept 5 assault

SENAPATI, SEPTEMBER 7 (MExN): The United Naga Council (UNC) has condemned the assault meted out to Zuina Hotngambou of Rianglong village, Tamei Sub-Division, Tamenglong District on September 5 at Chalwa along the IT road, allegedly by the Kuki Revolutionary Army. 

A press release from the UNC said that “such blatant act of extortion or unabated imposition upon the Nagas is a matter of serious concern and UNC has taken strong exception over the matter.”

“The Naga people will no longer tolerate such unholy and provoking activities in the Naga villages,” it asserted, adding that such wanton and reckless showdown should be stopped in order to avert from further misunderstanding and unwanted escalation.

“Due justice to the victim should be ensured by all concern and the perpetrators should not be left scot-free. For which, the concerned authorities and community leaders must initiate necessary actions to bring amicable solution over the matter and deliver justice to the victim promptly for the well-being of all the communities,” the UNC urged.
