Dimapur, April 2 (EMN): NSCN (IM) strongly condemned on what it termed as ‘unwarranted raid and arrest’ of its senior leader Zaremo Murry, Steering Executive member, along with his wife Mrs. Easter Murry and a lady helper Miss. Boihe Konyak at his Burma Camp residence on April 1 at 4 p.m. by 32 Assam Rifles on falsely accusation as member of Khaplang group.
NSCN (IM), in a statement issued by MIP, alleged that he was forcibly made to sign as a worker of NSCN (K). NSCN testified that Zaremo joined the NSCN/GRPN in 2016 after discharging himself from NSCN (Reformation).
It said frequent raids, arresting and targeting national workers by ‘notorious’ Indian armed forces/agencies undermining ceasefire ground rules and the peace talks itself is undesirable and detrimental to the prevailing peaceful atmosphere at a time when Nagas are expecting final and peaceful solution from the prolong peace negotiation between India and Nagas representing by the NSCN.
‘Long awaited peaceful solution should not be reiegated to the backburner due to such un-mindfu1 action of Indian armed forces,’ MIP said in its statement.
The NSCN strongly condemned the unscrupulous action of 32 Assam Rifles in arresting Zaremo, who has so much contributed in maintaining peace among Naga society. It added that arresting the two innocent women civilians without any rhyme and reason tantamount to violation of human rights which is highly condemnable and has no place in civilised society.
NSCN (IM) further urged the Government of India (GOI) to immediately control its armed cadres to behave and adhere to the agreed ceasefire ground rules and to release the arrested senior leader along with his wife and the lady helper unconditionally.
