Mokokchung, 20 August (MTNews): In a follow up to the clarification of a viral video purportedly showing “one private of the Naga Army H Khosiivei Lovingson Roah which linked him to supplying arms to the Meiteis,” the NSCN-IM has alleged the Indian Security Forces of targeting the NSCN to drag it into the “communal pool of violence.”


In an update to the earlier clarification received here on Sunday, the NSCN-IM stated that on Roah’s release from the custody of the Indian security forces, “he was taken over by the Naga Army to unearth the truth of everything and the exact circumstances that led to creating the stinging sensation in the social media platforms.”


“It is however understood that he was released after rewarding him handsomely for doing what he was asked to do in order to fulfill the scheming game plan to corrupt the communal integrity of NSCN amidst the communal violence that is burning Manipur,” the NSCN-IM update read, issued by its MIP.


What happened as per Roah’s “confessional statement” was that he was caught somewhere at Lamlong, Imphal East, Manipur, on 15 August 2023 by the security forces and taken to their camp somewhere beyond Chingmeirong, Imphal., the NSCN-IM said. “After that he was blindfolded and taken to the Army Camp located between Koirengkei and Mantripukhri where he was interrogated,” it claimed.


“There he was subjected to 30 degree torture and under duress he was made to speak out exactly as tutored, before the camera,” the NSCN-IM alleged. “He was threatened with dire consequences if he refused to cooperate. Thus, everything that flowed from his mouth was done under duress and nothing of his own version,” it said.


The NSCN-IM further said that “the manner of how it happened leaves us nothing to doubt about the existence of a conspiracy group managed by a powerful and sinister security forces to assassinate the image of the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN) before the world by plotting such an extremely dramatic situation in the midst of the Meitei-Kuki-Zo ethnic pogrom.”


This is the awful truth of the Indian Security Forces targeting the NSCN to drag NSCN into the “communal pool of violence,” it added.


It may be recalled that the NSCN-IM had on 18 August clarified that Khosiivei Lovingson Roah, the person seen in the viral video, was granted medical leave for ear infection on 7 August and was sent to Dimapur but went missing since then. “This is a cheap propaganda stunt of the adversary pure and simple,” the NSCN-IM had maintained earlier.
