IMPHAL, March 28 (Newmai News Network): The militant outfit Zeliangrong United Front (ZUF) has condemned the fresh attack by National Socialist Council of Nagalim (IM) cadres at Nungnang village under Noney police station, Tamenglong district on March 27 at 6 am.
Secretary of ZUF A Remroi alleged that NSCN (IM) cadres retreated when the Zeliangrong Tiger Force (ZTF) cadres, the armed wing of ZUF, repulsed their advance.
“Indiscriminate firing took place which might have killed innocent villagers, if not for the timely presence of the ZTF”, stated ZUF. The Front cautioned that consequences will be greatly destructive for all if the NSCN (IM) continues to perpetrate such attacks, and re-iterated its stand that the ZUF is not anti Naga nationalists.
The ZUF also condemned in the strongest term the “inhuman crime” committed by four persons, including two IRB personel, on March 22 at around 2 am near Keinou in Bishnupur district, in which they abducted G Jangthailiu Kamei, 40, wife of Ngamsoklung Kamei forcibly at gun point in a Santro car (MN-04A0669) and gang raped her and tried to kill her. The helpless woman was found in an unconscious state, and a rape and attempt to murder case had been registered by Bishnupur police station, related the the Zeliangrong outfit.
The ZUF further stated that they were endorsing the statement of the Revolutionary People`s Front (RPF) and United National Liberation Front (UNLF) condemning the heinous crime and the commitment expressed by the UNLF to take up appropriate action, which is appreciated by the ZUF for its maturity.
The ZUF then expressed that it cannot tolerate such an act of discrimination against tribal woman whose chastity was destroyed beyond repair and the irreparable loss of prestige. It said that such beastly acts of people having savage mindset should be put to check once and for all, and reiterated its stand to protect its people, land and resources.
The four culprits also assaulted the men who came in six Shaktiman trucks along with the victim and extorted at gun point Rs 70000 and 40 kgs of u-morok chilly which the victim was taking to the market for sale, alleged the ZUF.
