A day after the Mizo Zirlai Pawl (Mizo Student Association) General Headquarters wrote to the registrar, Mizoram University on Monday requesting immediate termination of Teresa Ningthoujam from PhD Programme at Mizoram University, the Association on Tuesday filed an FIR against the student at Vaivakawn Police Station, Aizawl, Mizoram.
The FIR filed by MZP president H Lalthianghlima, alleged Manipuri PhD scholar Teresa, presently staying at Kumtluang Women Hostel, Mizoram University of taking active role in raising funds in Mizoram for procuring arms and ammunitions to help Meitei armed groups.
The viral-video on social media has shown that such funds are to be used for the purpose of killing Kuki tribes, it accused.
Such collection of funds in Mizoram and instigating tensions against Kuki tribes are of serious nature, it asserted. It urged to take appropriate criminal proceedings against Teresa.
It also mentioned that the association is a registered NGO having registration that is SR No 35 of 1969-70 under the Societies Registration Act. MZP said that it has been actively taking part in the society, not only in upliftment of students but also in re-structuring the Mizo society by different measures, the release added.
Mention may be made that MZP GHQ wrote to the Registrar, Mizoram University on Monday demanding to terminate Teresa’s enrolment in the PhD Programme at the University after a video purportedly showing her involvement in collection of funds related to the ongoing communal conflict surfaced on social media.
