NSCN-IM has on Wednesday clarified that the unidentified individual arrested in Delhi airport with a gun converter is not its member.
Refuting the news report published in The Hindustan Times on March 17, the outfit in a statement issued by its MIP (Ministry of Publicity) dubbed it as “devoid of any iota of truth”.
The NSCN-IM further challenged the Indian authorities to come out with the details of the arrested individual to serve better understanding for the present as well as for the near future.
“Such malicious accusation of the Indian authority particularly the NIA and the custom officials at Delhi airport is a desperate attempt to tarnish the image of the NSCN and gain publicity which is nothing but a cheap stunt,” the statement said.
The ‘NSCN-IM government’ also advised those Indian agencies to do thorough investigation before branding any suspect as NSCN member. It further wanted that the Government of India avert any maligned design to cause confusion to the Indian and Naga populace through their “irresponsible act” of arresting a suspect who is not even identified till now by the Indian agencies concerned.
