IMPHAL: The NSCN (K) on the event of arrests, torture and imprisonment of its members issued a statement highlighting anti-nationalistic activities caused by its former cadres using NSCN credentials and term it “th[e] nastiest form of treason against the Naga Sovereign struggle”
The NSCN (K) today issued a statement alleging that the “anti-national activities” of two of its former cadres acting with the “active patronage” of a GPRN/NSCN Kilonser “has led to arrests, torture and consequent imprisonment” of several NSCN (K) cadres “since the duo’s fake arrest/pre-arranged surrender to Indian Army several months back.” It further accused the Kilonser of being a “facilitator between the renegade cadres and Indian Security agencies.”
A press statement from the MIP of the NSCN (K) identified the duo as one Kughato Chishi and Sgt. Vikuto Zhimo, while naming the GPRN/NSCN Kilonser as one Hokato Vusshe.
It accused the duo of “running an extortion racket using NSCN/GPRN credentials at every possible opportunity” and alleged that the Kilonser “issues threatening counter extortion demands alleging the victim’s nexus with NSCN/GPRN.”
The NSCN (K) stated that it would “in due course of time exact befitting action to the extent of capital punishment shall be arbitrarily imposed without trial since the evidences against the three is well established and beyond doubt and their treacherous activities has caused irreparable mental and physical impairment on several committed national workers.”
Stating that several innocent citizens and State Government officials are being “harassed constantly and blackmailed on fake unsubstantiated charges,” the NSCN (K) said that “this nastiest form of treason against the Naga Sovereign struggle at these challenging times by the traitor trio shall be duly recorded for posterity to judge.”
The NSCN (K) claimed that Hokato Vusshe was “dishonourably stripped of Kilonser status and removed from Chaplee Ministry on massive corruption charges to the tune of crores of rupees and conspiracy to assassinate senior Naga Army officer.” After this, it said that he “defected” to the GPRN/NSCN in 2013 “with several Crores of rupees worth of NSCN/GPRN properties along with Kughato and Vikuto; whereas the latter two returned to NSCN/GPRN fold and continued covert sabotage activities against us…”
It further accused the Kilonser of being involved in a coordinated campaign with Indian Security Forces to “buy off NSCN cadres.” “As a result, several gullible cadres were offered cash and made to defect to Khehoi Camp which included Town Commander, Zunheboto Maj. Akito, Chairman, Sumi Region and several middle and lower ranking cadres,” it said.
The NSCN (K) stated it would not remain a silent spectator but be compelled to adopt “necessary measures to once and for all stop this source of anti-Naga breeding openly.”
It further issued a final caution to a former Naga Army cadre, Lt. Akahoto alias Hekato, who was recently released from Central Jail, Dimapur to “immediately cease impersonating Naga Army Officer and also desist from seeking financial services from various offices, contractors and suppliers in and around Dimapur and Kohima using the credential of Col. Isak Sumi, which was never issued to him at any point of time.” “No further warning shall be issued,” it stated and “directed” the former cadre to “leave Kohima and Dimapur Districts effectively from the date of publication of this note.”
