The Indian security forces had once again indulged in making wild allegations against the NSCN. This is the irony of the situation created by the security forces in the land of ceasefire that has facilitated the ongoing Naga political talks for over two decades.
Much to the indignation of NSCN, the security forces had gone to the extent of linking the Dimasa National Liberation Army (DNLA) as the new front used by NSCN for the purpose of extortion in Assam. For the NSCN the need to use other organizations for extortion does not arise at all. We go for legitimate tax collections from different commercial sources and have nothing to do with extortion as interpreted by the security forces.
We deny the role of Brigadier Chipemmi Shimrang for his alleged link with DNLA. Brig. C. Shimrang has not been around Nagalim since 2016. So, it is highly ridiculous to use his name in the security forces scheme of anti-NSCN propaganda. It may be noted that security forces gunned down eight cadres of DNLA on the 23rd May, 2021 at Dugudisha in Karbi Anglong, Assam. It was nothing less than pure act of insanity. They were killed in a fake encounter. The security forces should not drag NSCN’s name to save its face from their wicked manner of counter-insurgency operations.
