Zeliangrong Civil Organizations Demands NIA Probe Into Lamhainamdi Killing

Kohima, April 02 (NEx): Taking a serious note of the lack of will on the part of the government of India and Nagaland government in arresting the criminals even after a lapse of more than ten days of the incident at Lamhainamdi, the Zeliangrong Civil Organizations (ZCOs) in a meeting resolved to demand the GoI to immediately intervene into the matter by directing the National Investigating Agency (NIA) to probe into the incident for impartial, speedy and effective investigation for delivery of justice.

A press statement from Zeliangrong Baudi (AMN) issued on April 2nd, said that this was resolved in an emergency meeting conducted by Zeliangrong Baudi (Assam, Manipur & Nagaland) on March 30th, 2021 at Peren District, Nagaland where, Zeliangrong leaders representing various Zeliangrong Civil Societies and Organizations hailing from Zeliangrong territories of the three States- Assam, Manipur & Nagaland attended the meeting and deliberated in connection with the killing of three innocent persons at Lamhai Namdi village on March 22nd, 2021 by well trained gunmen who were armed with automatic sophisticated weapons.

The meeting strongly condemned the killing of three innocent Zeliangrongs in their own village land in the most barbaric manner by the well trained gunmen and took serious note of the lack of will on the part of the Govt. of India and Nagaland Govt. in arresting the criminals even after a lapse of more than ten days of the ugly incident.

The CSOs stated that leaving the killers to roam freely even after so many days of the ugly incident is a glaring sign of inability of the GoI and GoN in arresting the perpetrators which is evident of insensitivity, insincerity and lack of commitment into the matter.

The organizations also mentioned that the degree of crime perpetrated upon the three innocent villagers within their own land is intolerable and cannot be ruled out of pre-planned and orchestrated at the high level of conspiracy, and said that it is the top-most priority, duty and responsibility of GoI and GoN to ensure the safety and security of its citizen.
