The NSCN-IM on Sunday refuted the allegations made on a viral video of supplying arms to Meitei insurgent outfits, highlighting the existence of a conspiracy group managed by powerful security forces to assassinate its image by plotting it in the midst of the Manipur conflict.
This is the awful truth of the Indian Security Forces targeting the NSCN to drag it into the “communal pool of violence,” stated a release issued by its ministry of information and publicity.
On H Khosiivei Lovingson 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 stated.
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 game plan to corrupt the communal integrity of NSCN amidst the communal violence that is burning Manipur, it mentioned.
What happened as per his confessional statement was that he was caught somewhere at Lamlong, Imphal East, Manipur, on August 15, by the security forces and taken to their camp somewhere beyond Chingmeirong, Imphal, NSCN-IM stated.
After that he was blindfolded and taken to the Army Camp located between Koirengkei and Mantripukhri where he was interrogated, it further stated. It alleged that he was subjected to 3rd degree torture and under duress he was made to speak out exactly as tutored, before the camera.
It further alleged that 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 added.
