Kohima:  The Sumi Naga community has decided to sever all ties with the NSCN (IM) in Nagaland, following the incident of alleged attempted rape and murder of passengers by the cadres.

The move comes after the taking over of three designated camps of the NSCN (M) in Mukali by the Sumis against the allegedly sexual harassment, attempted rape and murder of passengers by the cadres of the outfit.  

A statement jointly issued by frontal organisations of the Sumi community said the decision was taken during the Sumi general public meeting held under the aegis of the Sumi Hoho at the Town Hall Zunheboto yesterday.

The resolution was signed by Sumi Hoho, Women, Youth and Student bodies of the community.

“The relationship between the Sumis and the NSCN (IM) is hereby delinked and all ties with that organisation is severed with immediate effect,” the statement said.  All kinds of taxations from the Sumis to the NSCN (IM) shall cease to exist, it said.
