NSCN-K says those arrested on charge for snatching weapons are innocent civilians

Rebel group NSCN-K has refuted the security forces claims about the arrest of their cadres who were allegedly involved in the snatching of weapon from the IRB personnel on August 29 in a combined operation at Sibilong Village in Tamenglong district.
In a statement issued by MIP, NSCN/GPRN, the outfit said that the two persons claimed as cadres of NSCN-K by the security forces are not their members or cadres.
“The arrested persons Kabigai and Lumkhaolung of Sibilong Village are mere innocent civilians and have no connection whatsoever with the NSCN.K in any manner”, the statement said.
While terming the arrest of innocent as desperate act of Indian Security forces to save their faces by randomly arresting innocent civilians after their inability to trace or apprehend the Elite Strike Force’s of NSCN-K responsible for the weapon snatching the rebel group called the arrest an act of cowardice.
The protest by the women folks of the village against the arrest and violent suppression of the protest and subsequent clash between the security forces and the village’s protesting women in itself is evident enough that the two are being made a scapegoat, the statement added.
It said, Kabigai and Lumkahaolung being innocent and unconnected to NSCN-K or the incident definitely will continue their routine life in the village as usual. The NSCN-K appealed the concerned civil authorities and human rights groups to immediately intervene to ensure that innocent civilians are not targeted unnecessarily.
