The Inspector General of Assam Rifles (IGAR-North) has said publication of articles issued NSCN (K) by the print media would be construed as providing support to an unlawful association,  reports UNI.
It said bringing to attention that NSCN (K) has been declared an unlawful association under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act 1967 by the Ministry of Home Affairs; an official notice issued by Colonel Rajesh Gupta, IGAR claimed that any article which projects the demands of NSCN (K) and gives it publicity is a violation under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act 1967.
The UNI report further added that the intention of declaring NSCN (K) as an Unlawful Association is to curb and prevent fresh recruitment, violence, terrorist and secessionist activities and collection of funds. For reference, IGAR pointed out that the local media had published in recent editions of their newspapers, articles issued by MIP of NSCN (K) threatening senior law makers of the Nagaland Government and encouraging collection of funds by its representative.
It therefore asserted that articles from NSCN (K) should not be published by the media, the reported added quoting notice said.
