NSCN-IM denies involvement in Arunachal Pradesh ambush

NSCN - IM through a press Statement on Thursday denied involvement in Arunachal Pradesh ambush incident.

Kohima, October 22 (NEx): The NSCN – IM through a press Statement on Thursday denied involvement in Arunachal Pradesh ambush incident. The statement was issued following the media reports alleging NSCN-IM as responsible for the incident.

The NSCN-IM clarified that it has nothing to do with the Arunachal Pradesh ambush incident at a place near Sanliam village in Tirap District.

‘It is unfortunate that the media people simply gave report based on their own wild conjecture, blaming the NSCN. Such an unhealthy practice by the media to connect NSCN to the incident where one Assam Rifles jawan died is highly dismissive,’ it stated.

Earlier, the PRO (Def) Kohima in a press release to NagalandExpress informed that an Assam Rifles Jawan was killed in an encounter with a group of insurgents near Saniliam Village in Tirap District of Arunachal Pradesh on Wednesday, October 21, 2020.
