Imphal, Aug 4,
The Thadou Students’ Association (TSA) in a statement said that some persons who claimed to be members of UKLF has asked TSA to be silent on July 13 Moreh terror attack.
A statement said, “while we appreciate the so-called peace banquet at Moreh on July 23 between the Kuki National Organisation/Kuki National Army (KNO/KNA) and UKLF in the presence of several CSOs of Moreh, we would like to again make it clear that our demand for arrest of the culprits and justice in the July 13 Moreh terrorist attack have nothing to do with any feud or peace between KNA and UKLF. Neither Thongminlun nor TSA had any knowledge of the peace banquet or involvement in it. TSA and its activities have never been for or against any particular militant groups or political parties, but for justice, peace and freedom and for people’s welfare”.
The TSA further urged all armed militant groups and civil organisations not to harass, threaten or try and force us to stop pursuing justice in the July 13 Moreh incident of attempted murder of Moreh TSA president, Thongminlun Haokip, and his family including his pregnant wife and two children both below five years of age and also urged the government and authorities concerned to stop armed militants from intimidating or harming TSA leaders and the general public.
“ Any further untoward incidents happen to Thongminlun and his family or any other TSA leaders should be held responsible by the government “, it added.
The TSA had earlier pointed fingers to KNO/KNA to the attack of its leader on July 13 at Moreh and had urged the govt. to arrest the culprits.
