Senapati: While strongly condemning the beating of the Liangmai Naga man by Kuki Revolutionary (KRA) cadres along IT Road under Kangpokpi district on September 5, the United Naga Council (UNC) warned that the “Naga people will no longer tolerate such unholy and provoking activities in the Naga villages.”
It can be mentioned that one Z Hotngambou of Rianglong village, Tamei subdivision, Tamenglong district, was assaulted by Kuki militants on September 5 in Kangpokpi district by the Kuki Revolutionary Army (KRA), which is under Suspension of Operation (SoO) with the government, at Chalwa along I T Road under Kangpokpi district, according to reports.
“Be it armed Kuki militants or civilians, such wanton and reckless showdown should be stopped in order to avert from further misunderstanding and unwanted escalation,” the UNC said.
The Naga body, in no uncertain terms, condemned the “brutal assault” meted out to Zuina Hotngambou of Rianglong village, Tamei sub-division, Tamenglong district by the Kuki Revolutionary Army, which is under Suspension of Operations (SoO).
“It is shocking to learn the undesirable act of savagery violence occurring at regular intervals targeting Naga villagers while travelling and ferrying goods along the IT Road,” the UNC said.
“Such blatant act of extortion or unabated imposition upon the Nagas is a matter of serious concern and UNC has taken strong exception over the matter,” the Naga body also said. “The Naga people will no longer tolerate such unholy and provoking activities in the Naga villages. Be it armed Kuki militants or civilians, such wanton and reckless showdown should be stopped in order to avert from further misunderstanding and unwanted escalation”.

The UNC then demanded that due justice to the victim should be ensured by all concerns and the perpetrators should not be left scot-free. “For which, the concerned authorities and community leaders must initiate necessary actions to bring amicable solution over the matter and deliver justice to the victim promptly for the well-being of all the communities,” it added.
