NSCN IM issues statement on Namrei episode of Sept 11

Ironically, the Assam Rifles (AR) particularly in Manipur had taken the fancy to provoke the

Naga people under any slight pretext notwithstanding the fact that crucial rounds of the Indo-Naga political talks is at hand in New Delhi. What is more indignant of the ubiquitous AR is their free-wheeling movement among the populace despite their Covid-19 positive case status shooting up every passing day in Manipur and elsewhere in the Northeast.

What happened on the 11th September, 2020 at Namrei village, Ukhrul district (Wung Tangkhul Region) under the command of its Commanding Officer (CO) Rippon Bora of the 27th AR when he made unwarranted intrusion into the village without taking the village authority into confidence is highly condemnable by all right thinking people.

What is more indignant and condemnable is the manner of Rippon Bora raising his hand to slap the Secretary of the Namrei Shanao Long (Namrei Women Society). Such indignity committed against women is unheard of in Naga culture. We condemn Boro for using force mindlessly against the women. What is all the more demeaning of CO Bora is he display no remorse and regret for his shameless act against the women.

Nothing incriminating documents were found from the NSCN members Bora targeted. Thus,
there is no reason why he should behave in such bewildering manner.
