IMPHAL, Sept 6: A Liangmai Naga was assaulted by Kuki
militants recently in Kangpokpi district, according to Liangmai
organisations. They accused the Kuki Revolutionary Army (KRA),
which is under Suspension of Operation (SoO) with the
government, for beating the Liangmai Naga man. The incident
reportedly occurred at 7:30 am on Tuesday at Chalwa along I T
Road under Kangpokpi district.
The victim has been identified as one Z Hotngambou of

In a joint condemnation statement, Liangmai Naga Council of
Eastern Zone, Liangmai Naga Council of Northern Zone,
Liangmai Naga Council of Southern Zone and Liangmai Naga
Council of Western Zone said, “In a very shocking incident, a
group of Kuki militants who identified themselves as KRA (one
of the SoO groups) beat a Liangmai Naga at Chalwa, IT Road,
who was on the way to Imphal from Rianglong village”. The

Liangmai bodies said the Kuki militants stopped the vehicle and
asked for tax. “When the driver (the victim) said he didn’t have
money, they started punching him. The victim was profusely
bleeding as the Kuki militants beat him”, the Liangmai

of the victim before he was beaten up, according to the
