NSCN-IM leader to be discharged next week

New Delhi, Aug 1 (IANS) Isak Chisi Swu, co-founder of the northeast-based militant group National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM) is set to be discharged next week, a source said on Saturday.

Swu was admitted to a city hospital in early July due to kidney failure.

“He is doing better now. He is put off ventilation and is recovering well now. If things remain the same he will be discharged by the end of next week,” said the source, who is close to Swu’s family.

Swu was admitted to the south Delhi-based Fortis Hospital, where he was also diagnosed with urinary tract infection and underwent a surgery on July 14.

The source said that Swu’s family members continue to be at the hospital under police protection.

The 85-year-old Swu, who is currently the chairman of NSCN-IM, was one of the key members in the peace talks between the government and the armed group. A ceasefire agreement was signed in 1997.
