NESO condemns the killing of one innocent civilian by the Army in Arunachal Pradesh

Shillong, May 17: The North East Student’s Organization (NESO) strongly condemns the killing of one innocent civilian named Lamdaan Lhukam 60 Years which also led to scores of civilians being injured at Pumaoand Khogla village in Longding District under Arunachal Pradesh.

This act is unbecoming of the Indian Army which claims itself to be one of the most discipline forces in the whole world. NESO have learnt that the incident occurred during a peaceful meeting which was held between the Villagers and army personnel’s of 19th Sikh Regiment regarding an incident involving a few army personnel who had beaten up one Jimphu Wangnow for no reason earlier on Friday night.

A commotion broke out when the army personnel who had no sufficient reason to explain their actions tried to leave the meeting midway which angered the villagers. The heinous crime purported by the Indian Army has severely contradicted the very underlying purpose for which they have been deployed for in the region which is to maintain law and  order and to guard against external aggression.

The NESO is of the view that such instances which have repeatedly taken place in different parts of the region over the years have created negative aspersion and also widened the gap between the civilians and the armed forces in such areas.

There has to be accountability for such omission and commission. Further the NESO demands the government to extend appropriate exgratia to the deceased and injured people and would also call for a thorough inquiry into the whole matter, Said Mr S B Jyrwa in the press statement today.
