KU condemns 
Meanwhile, the Konyak Union (KU) vehemently condemned what it described as  the “heinous and brutal killing” of late Heiwang on June 13 by unidentified assailants. 

Such a cold blooded murder is not just condemnable but also detrimental to the peace and security of the people in this civilized world, it said. 

This act of violence blatantly violates the Eastern Nagaland Peoples' Organisation’s (ENPO) December 18, 2007 Tuensang summit Resolution which unequivocally prohibits any form of bloodshed in the ENPO region, it pointed out 
Accordingly, the KU called upon “group or party involved in this cowardly act to come forward and justify” the killing.
“We are deeply pained and hurt by this brazen act of killing without any regard for humanity and also to the Civil Society Organisation (CSO) resolution that desire peace and tranquillity,” it added. 

As ‘guardian of our people,’ the KU said it always advocated for peace and the peaceful resolution of difference and issues as violence does not bring any sense or solution to the problem. 

Every individual's life matter and no authority have the right to snatch someone's life without justification, it added. 

The KU also urged the law enforcement agencies to investigate the killing without delay and ensure that justice is brought to the victim's family at the earliest. 

“We stand in solidarity with the bereaved family and reiterate our commitment to upholding peace and harmony in our region,” it added.
