Lamka, Sep 6: The Village Authority of Sinzawl vehemently condemned the reported physical assault on a VA member in broad daylight yesterday by the 38 Assam Rifles under the leadership of Captain BJ Meitei.
A VA member of Sinzawl, Vungzamang (31) was assaulted at his residence in front of his family members by farcically accusing him of having unholy nexus with militants, said a statement issued by Liansuanthang Guite and H Thangkhanlal, the Chairman and Secretary of Sinzawl village, located at the confluence of Myanmar and Mizoram border. The statement demanded the Captain to come out with the group with which the victim has nexus at a time when most of the hill based militant outfits, if not all, have signed SoO with the Government. "Capt, Please bear in mind that we are innocent civilians having no nexus with any militant outfits. With you we eat, sleep, guard and shield our borders, but beyond the call of your duty you tortured and harassed just for the sake of the so called ACR (annual credit record!!),’ said the statement of the VA. The VA has appealed to the friends of the hill people not to repeat such fault allegations towards the peace loving citizens of India in future.
