DIMAPUR: The Association of Power Engineers Nagaland (APEN) on Saturday expressed strong resentment over the alleged harassment meted out to one of its members Er Thanyalo Kath, sub-divisional officer (electrical) Mon, in Mon town of Nagaland by some miscreants, who claimed to be from the NSCN (U) group.

“Such unwarranted intimidation with death threats on a government Officer delivering an essential service to the public is totally uncalled for,” APEN president Er Kasho Chishi and general secretary Er. N. Myingthungo Ngullie said in a release.
