Newmai News
 DIMAPUR, Aug 17 - A senior NSCN (I-M) functionary was shot dead by unidentified gunmen here on Friday evening. Reports said that NSCN (I-M) ‘major’ Toishe Yeptho was shot by two gunmen at his house in Purana Bazar around 7.30 pm yesterday.

Meanwhile, the NSCN (I-M) said in a press statement on Saturday that the “Nagas in general and the NSCN” in particular are shocked at the “dastardly act” of killing Major Toishe Yeptho of the “Naga Army” when the Nagas are still in an upbeat mood having just celebrated the 73rd Naga Independence Day across Nagalim.

The NSCN (I-M) statement said that such “cowardice” by the killers is condemned in the strongest terms.
