NSCN (IM) rubbishes Assam Rifles’ ‘surrender’ claims


DIMAPUR: The NSCN (IM) today dismissed Assam Rifles’ claim that three of its cadres from Longding district in Arunachal Pradesh have surrendered. 

The outfit accused the Assam Rifles of presenting false information to the media to serve their own narrative regarding it.

The ministry of information and publicity of the outfit, in a release, said as seen in the media, the surrendered operatives from Longding district self styled private Chakwang Wangsu, 38, of Osako village joined the outfit in 2009, self styled corporal Khampai Wangsu, 34, of Osaka village joined the outfit in 2005 and self styled private Nokdun Wangsu, 31, of Osaka village joined the outfit in 2010.

It put on record that ‘private’ Chakwang Wangsu was discharged in 2012, ‘corporal’ Khampai Wangsu in 2008 and ‘private’ Nokdun Wangsu in 2013.

The NSCN said the word “surrender” is a misnomer in this context as the three who were said to have surrendered were discharged over the past years.

The release said the Assam Rifles in their newly adopted style of operations against the NSCN has started taking a fancy to the word “surrender” with the pre-determined plan to demoralise the Naga political struggle. “This is visibly seen as part of the Assam Rifles’ smear campaign against NSCN,” it stated.
