Suspected armed assailants belonging to the National Socialist Council of Nagaland – Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM) faction shot down a teacher at Aimol village in Manipur’s Chandel district on Monday.
Following the gruesome murder large number of people today came out at Pallel area and prevented all sort of vehicular movement along the Imphal-Moreh route.
According to initial reports, the NSCN-IM cadres resorted to heavy firing post the incident. The situation is said to be tense in the area.
The government had on September 16 last year declared the NSCN-K, responsible for explosions, ambushes and bombings, as an unlawful organisation for a period of five years.
The NSCN was formed on January 31, 1980, by Isak Chisi Swu, Thuingaleng Muivah and S.S. Khaplang opposing the ‘Shillong Accord’ signed by the then NNC (Naga National Council) with the Indian Government.
Later, differences surfaced within the outfit over the issue of commencing a dialogue process with the Indian Government and on April 30, 1988, the NSCN split into two factions, namely the NSCN-K led by S. S. Khaplang, and the NSCN-IM, led by Isak Chisi Swu and Thuingaleng Muivah.
