The Rising People’s Party (RPP) of Nagaland, while condemning the "custodial death" of E Henveih Phom on August 25 by the Assam police, termed the incident as an act of terrorism and murder.

In a press statement issued on Tuesday, RPP, the newest Nagaland based political party, said that the "torturous death" of the 35-year-old E Henveih Phom under Assam police custody is completely inhumane and befitting of the highest level of punishment under relevant sections of the law.

The RPP said it expected immediate intervention from the Government of Nagaland at the highest level so that an investigation be set up to book the irresponsible Assam police involved in the case.

While applauding to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and the Indigenous Lawyers Association of India (ILAI) for the "commendable act" of taking up the Issue and the various civil society organisations raising their voices for seeking justice, the RPP is also of the firm opinion that such acts of "gunda-giri" and "act of terror" committed by the law-enforcing forces should not be left unpunished.
