GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF NAGALIM
OFFICE OF THE
Kuki Tribal Union (KTU) NSCN/GPRN
12th June 2017
The Kuki Tribal Union (KTU) NSCN/GPRN would like to clarify that, Late Mr. Khailun Haokip a Member of the Steering Committee, NSCN/GPRN, of Kuki Region who was abducted from T. Natjang Village, Kasom Block Ukhrul District Manipur on 29th May 2017 and brutally tortured into death at Bongbal Kholen Village Saikul sub-division was not KTU C-in-C, as wrongly claimed by the culprits. He was a Steering Committee Member of the NSCN/GPRN Kuki Region (KTU) and assigned as KTU Ukhrul unit in-charge. Recently he was on duty to T. Natjang and Mollen Village especially for mobilization matter as assigned to him.
But, the KNF (James Fraction) abducted him with Mr. Khuphung Keishing a Tatar of GPRN who was released immediately while the later was detained. So, blaming and condemning Mr. Khuphung in connection with this matter is rootless which is totally null and void.
Further while the deceased was still detained in their custody, the KNF ( N) through the Publicity information Secretary Mr. Gogou Vaiphei, sought the directives of the Kuki Inpi Manipur to decide the fate of Late. Mr. Khailun Haokip, as to whether he be kept alive or put to death. Therefore, the brutal killing and cold blooded assassination of Late. Khailun Haokip is the responsibility of the Kuki Inpi Manipur (KIM).
Lastly, the KTU would like to appeal to Mr. James Kipgen that Late Pu. Nehlun Kipgen was the real patriot and the first Kuki revolutionary leader in modern times. No one like him will ever be born again from among the Kuki even some of the KTU cadres are also his cadres before his dead.
Therefore, we are deeply shocked of learning the evil designs to damage his good name and image. So kindly discern his good name from your gangs name.
Information & Publicity Secretary
