Hundreds join candlelight vigil in protest against ‘custodial death’ of Naga youth in Assam. Talking at the dissent, a head of the Eastern Naga People’s Union Kohima (ENPUK), censured the “uncouth demonstration” of the Assam Police
Kohima: Hundreds of occupants clad in conventional clothing assembled at the old MLA intersection in Kohima for a candlelight vigil on Tuesday night to challenge the supposed custodial passing of a Naga youth by the Assam Police.
Coordinated by the Phom Students’ Union Kohima (PSUK), the vigil denounced the passing of Henveih Phom (35), child of L. Eshak Phom from Anaki-C Village. Henveih was captured by the Assam Police at Anaki Village Jurisdiction (Nagaland) and remanded into Sivasagar District Jail in Assam before his demise.
Talking at the dissent, a head of the Eastern Naga People’s Union Kohima (ENPUK), censured the ‘uncouth demonstration’ of the Assam Police, saying that the unbelievable manner by which they completed the entire play, dismissing all conventions and following up on their own understanding, has shown the Assam Police’s hard negligence for human existence.
“Such activities have no bearing in our general public, in our constitution nor any just state. Fortitude, which can likewise be deciphered as the force of the frail, has once more united every one of us to voice out against the barbarities of a couple of staff with personal stakes which brought about the unpleasant homicide of our brethren,” the delegate said.
The ENPUK pioneer, for the benefit of Nagas, requested the state legislatures of Assam and Nagaland work in coordination and lead a careful examination to convey equity.
Eastern Naga Women Organization Kohima (ENWOK) agent said there is no support for taking someone else’s life. Denouncing the demonstration, the ladies’ association said there is no appropriate for the police, thought about defenders, to remove individuals’ lives.
She encouraged individuals to join together and quit being simple onlookers, further denouncing the despicable, grim and undignified demonstration.
