Orgs flay Kohima bloodshed
Dimapur, August 4 (MExN): A number of organizations in the State have denounced the killing in Kohima where three persons were allegedly shot dead in a factional shootout at New Market, in Kohima today. The New Market Area Panchayat has denounced the killing. “This dastardly act of disturbing the peaceful atmosphere by killing three non residents within the colony jurisdiction is seriously viewed with deep concern,” the ward said in a press release issued to the Media today.
The Panchayat held an emergency meeting today where they “condemned the killing of three non-residents within the colony jurisdiction.” The house has “unanimously resolved to expel the tenants who were involved in harbouring the anti-social elements from the colony,” a copy of the resolutions from the Panchayat stated. In the past years too, “incidents of different nature” have brought shame and disgrace to the colony, the Panchayat stated. “The executive meeting resolved to strongly urge the concerned authorities to ensure that peaceful atmosphere of the colony is not disturbed.”
The colony urges the State authorities to “ensure that no such unwanted incidents re-occur in civilian populated area which creates instability and fear psychosis within peace loving citizens.” The Nagaland unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party issued a note today expressing “deep concern” over the killing. “It is very unfortunate that Naga brothers are killing one another, when at this crucial junction, the people in general are yearning for peace and solution,” a note from the BJP stated. This type of incidents “is not healthy signs” and has to be stopped, according to the BJP. The party appeals to all ‘Naga factions’ to exercise restraint and stop the bloodshed ‘in the general interest of all the Nagas’.
