NSF, ANCSU condemns

The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) and the All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) have in separate statements condemned the ‘brutal killing’ of the student.

 

“The federation strongly condemns such violent act with deadly consequences perpetrated by elements threatening to lead our society into chaos. Such inhumane and diabolical act negates the very aspiration of the general populace for peaceful living and ought to be outrightly condemned by all right thinking citizens,” the NSF said.

 

While appealing for peace and unity in all the Naga inhabited areas among various stakeholders, CSOs and individuals, sparing no efforts to uproot those elements and practices which are against the social and economic progress of our people, the NSF appealed to the law enforcement agencies to ensure that befitting punishment is awarded to the culprit at the earliest.

“No individuals, groups and organizations shall bail out the perpetrator at any cost,” ANCSU demanded and requested all right thinking citizens to vehemently condemn the act.
