The NSCN (IM) on Sunday accused the Indian army of moving from village to village near its central headquarters, Hebron, and resorting to frisking and asking the villagers annoying questions on the lookout for its members.

“The reckless approach of the Indian army on the lookout for NSCN (IM) members reminds us of the pre-ceasefire period that we abhor to look back,” the ministry of information and publicity of the outfit said in a release.

The release alleged that the Indian army has become too judgmental towards the NSCN and is creating “unpleasant scenario”.

This is not compatible with the present ceasefire arrangement between the government of India and NSCN, it said.

The NSCN (IM) said it regretted having issued this statement in the context of the changing situation where the road to Hebron has turned into “something nasty” and “bizarre” for commuters.

It alleged that the Indian army has gone capricious towards the public residing in the villages leading to Hebron.

The outfit said its sincere desire is for peace and not conflict of any sort. It, therefore, appealed for building a peaceful and lasting political solution.
