DIMAPUR, July 14 - NSCN-IM has strongly condemned the act of NIA for what it called unduly questioning its Steering Committee member Kishore Jeedung at his residence at Dhansiripar, Dimapur at 1 pm on July 12.
The NSCN(IM), in a release today, said a team led by one DSP from Assam Branch came along with other staff and three Nagaland Police personnel and asked Jeedung so many personal questions as well as on matter concerning his service as a �National Worker� even though he was not physically harassed.
�Nevertheless, it is mentally quite disturbing,� it said adding that the purpose of their visit was not disclosed.
Stating that during the 19 years of ceasefire and the political talks between the Government of India and the Nagas represented by NSCN where both the parties are giving their best efforts to come to its logical conclusion at the earliest time possible, it is disheartening to note that NIA is going against the principle and the spirit of ceasefire ground rules and the peace process, the NSCN-IM said.
�On several occasions NIA has summoned our leaders to their Court to which we have clearly made our point that we are not in a position to comply because legal entanglements must not come on the way to solution,� it stated.
