Extortionist nabbed in Chumukedima

9th February, 2016

According to sources, two of the four extortionists nabbed by the youths of Chumukedima on 6th Feb night, Saturday, are reportedly underground cadres, from the GPRN/NSCN and NSCN-IM. While it is true that few rogue cops should not sully the image of the whole police department, it is imperative that the police dismiss the two erring police personnel and appropriately book them as per the law. Also, the police should come out with a clear-cut statement whether the other two extortionists are underground cadres as alleged and if so, to which faction they belong to.

The exemplary courage shown by Chumukedima youths in overpowering the 4 armed extortionists is most laudable and should be emulated by all peace loving citizens. Once again, the general public and the business community are reminded that in the interest of peace no tax should be paid to any of the Underground factions under any circumstances.
