Kohima, February 9 (NE): The Naga Students Federation (NSF) condemns the February 5, 2019 incident at Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport, kolkata wherein the Eno. Neingolu Krome, Secretary General of Naga People’s Movement for Human Rights (NPMHR) was offloaded and prevented from boarding his scheduled flight to Bangkok by immigration officials without providing any clear reason, said a press release issued by NSF media cell on February 9, 2020.
The federation is confounded by the reasoning given by the immigration officials that the government has put a ban on his foreign travels. Placing a travel ban on a human right activist of international repute reeks of the government’s insecurity in their ruthless attempt to stifle the voices of those advocating for a just and fair society, it added.
The NSF, hereby, demands the authorities concerned to come clean on the reasons why a foreign travel ban has been arbitrarily placed against him and that the same be revoked with immediate effect. Further, the government should desist from the witch-hunt on Naga civil society leaders as any attempt to the contrary will prove counter productive, stated the press release.
