PRESS REL : LARGE MOV OF UNIDENTIFIED UG GP IN WOKHA
11/22/2013

WOKHA 20 Nov 13. On 18 Nov at around 06.30 PM, a Police report was recd regarding movement of a group of 15 – 20 unidentified UGs in the area of Bhandari. The police report received by the Assam Rifles, indicated that the cadres were moving in two civil trucks, hijacked by them at Merapani. The police check point at Bhandari tried to stop these two vehicles but the UGs rammed the truck through the police barrier damaging the police barrier. It is at this junction that the police personnel manning the barrier rushed to the nearest Assam Rifles Post and passed the information. Immediately the troops of Assam Rifles swung into action and a large scale manhunt was launched to track down the miscreants. Despite there being very little information to act upon, both the highjacked trucks were recovered near Liolongcham, by 3.30 AM in the morning. The drivers who were of Assamese origin, were found tied up inside the trucks. Upon being freed they narrated how they had been badly beaten up by the cadres prior to their trucks being highjacked at Merapani. They also revealed that these cadres numbering around 15 – 20 could have either gone towards Champang or may even have returned into DAB. They were not able to establish the identity of the cadres or the faction they belonged to but revealed that the cadres had used the word Phiro a few times during their conversation. The villagers of his Liolongcham also confirmed that the cadres had visited the village late at night and refilled their water bottles. Upon learning that the Assam Rifles were hot on their heels, they had fled back into the jungles in the DAB region. It may be noted with concern that movement of such a large heavily armed group of UGs, in such a rash and aggressive manner not only projects their clear intentions of not abiding by the CFGRs but also instils fear in the people of Nagaland and is not at all conducive to peace and development nor to any lasting solution.
