The Isak-Muivah led National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN-IM) following the gunning down of two of its cadres by the Assam Rifles at Arunachal Pradesh’s Tirap district on March 20, have said, “enough is enough”.

NSCN-IM while criticizing AR sharply over its attitude towards the laid CFGRs rules, the signing of Indo-Naga ceasefire agreement in 1997, accused the reckless attitude of AR. It stated that AR is going “too aggressive to get the best of the Cease Fire Ground Rules (CFGRs) to suit its devilish design against NSCN which exercised a gentleman attitude all the way to honor the CFGRs”.
