Concern voiced over violence involving NSCN

By Correspondent

DIMAPUR, Oct 19 � The Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) has expressed displeasure as well as concern over the recent incidents of violence involving the NSCN-IM and NSCN-K, both signatories of the Covenant of Reconciliation.

On the October 14 incident where one Khapur of the NSCN-K was assaulted by a military officer of the NSCN-IM, the Forum voiced deep concern and to thwart the incident from spiralling into violence, appealed to the highest level of signatories of the Covenant of Reconciliation to take immediate steps to prevent any actions that may jeopardise the hard-earned reconciliation process.

While keeping in mind the commitment and progress made in the Naga Reconciliation process through the historic Highest Level Meeting, the FNR stated that the temperament of the October 14 incident has undermined the spirit of the reconciliation. Such incidents will only shake the foundations of trust and confidence the political groups are beginning to build on each other, it added in a communiqu� while requesting the concerned authorities of the NSCN-IM to initiate investigation into the incident.

The Forum said it is also deeply disturbed and concerned by the October 6 incident at Phor village wherein a military commander of the NSCN-K reportedly shot a 49-year-old woman and assaulted village youths.

Pointing out that such incidents isolate popular support for the Naga movement, it appealed to the concerned authorities of the NSCN-K to initiate investigation into the incident too.

Stating that both the October 6 and October 14 incidents are instances of violence which contradict the values of Naga Reconciliation, the FNR stressed that it is essential that such acts of violence no longer become a part of the future. Therefore, in the greater interest of the Naga Reconciliation process, the Forum once again called upon the signatories of the Naga Reconciliation to demonstrate their commitment to Naga Reconciliation in both letter and spirit so that good will prevail.
