NSCN refutes Assam Rifles' claims of nabbing overground worker
The Isak-Muivah faction of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-IM), NSCN has refuted the report of January 1.
On Sunday Assam Rifles tweeted, “#AssamRifles troops in Nagaland apprehended an OGW of NSCN (IM) from general area Phuktong village in Mon district on 01 Jan recovering one point 32 mm pistol and live rounds. Apprehendee handed over to Police."
However, in a presser issued by the Government of the People’s Republic of Nagalim, the Ministry of Information and Publicity wrote, “We have nothing to do with the apprehended person and have no link whatsoever. However, the AR indulgence in such a game plan to put NSCN in a bad light is nothing new.”
The release also added that the Assam Rifles should stop forthwith to link any anti-social element apprehended with NSCN.
