Three NSCN-K insurgents nabbed

Dimapur, Jan 3 (IANS) In a setback to Naga insurgent group NSCN-K, security forces on Sunday arrested the outfit’s self-styled finance secretary and two other cadres.

Police said ‘finance secretary’ Max Asukomi was apprehended in an operation in Nagaland’s commercial hub Dimapur. The two other cadres — Asheto Rochelle and Isato Aye — were nabbed in a separate operation also in Dimapur.

“All the three arrested militants are residents of Zunheboto district but were presently staying in Dimapur to carry out extortion activities on behalf of the Naga militant faction opposing talks,” a police official said.

The National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang, led by its chief S.S. Khaplang, had last year abrogated from the ceasefire agreement with the Indian government and stepped up operations against security forces in Nagaland, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh.
