Top NSCN (K) militant killed in Nagaland

Itanagar, Sat, 19 Mar 2011 ANI

Itanagar, Mar 19 (ANI): J. Khonwang Thomas alias Chipu Menon, a "Brigadier" in the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang or NSCN (K), was killed in Nagaland's Mon District, according to Arunachal Pradesh Police.


The police recovered Thomas's dead body on Friday. The deceased was initially suspected to be murdered with a blunt object.


The post-mortem report, however, revealed that he was shot at point blank range, just below his right ear.


Reports claimed that militants belonging to the NSCN-K's rival faction killed him.


The National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isac-Muivah) or NSCN (IM), however, claimed it was not involved in the killing of Thomas.


The NSCN (K) allegedly runs camps along the Indo-Myanmar, where militants of other insurgent groups are also believed to be trained.


The NSCN came into being following the 1975 Shillong Accord, but it split into the NSCN (K) and NSCN (IM) factions in 1988, and there has been a bitter war between the two ever since.


Both factions have entered into an agreement with the Centre to suspended operations and house their cadre in designated camps in Nagaland.


An FIR has been lodged into the case and an investigation is in progress. (ANI)
