TR Zeliang alleges 'political vendetta' over NIA summon

The NIA has summoned former Nagaland chief minister TR Zeliang to Delhi on March 13 to join its probe into the alleged extortion and funding of the banned National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Khaplang), the anti-talk faction of the extremist outfit.

"The NIA notice was served to Mr. Zeliang through fax belonging to the Chief Minister's Office 15 minutes past midnight on March 12".

The NIA had registered a case in August 2016 to probe extortion activities by NSCN (K) and arrested four government officials in 2017 in connection with the case.

Zeliang has therefore requested the NIA to reschedule summons if he was required to appear in person.

The communiqué pointed out that earlier, just before the recently-concluded Assembly election, NIA had summoned for questioning three senior officials of CMO, including Zeliang's officer on special duty (OSD) and two public relation officers to Guwahati. He has to appear in NIA's New Delhi office and has to account for the alleged payments given by the government departments to banned terror organisation NSCN (K). NPF alleged that the official was repeatedly interrogated for five consecutive days from morning till late evening till the day T.R. Zeliang resigned as chief minister.

Meanwhile, the opposition NPF has questioned the BJP-led government at the Centre as to whether a "well-webbed political vendetta is being played out against Zeliang". "The three officers. complied and appeared before the NIA officer concerned at the Guwahati NIA branch office", the NPF said in the statement. The case seemed to have been settled in regard to the three officers.

"The timing of the summons is suspect", Hau said, stressing that the agency needs to understand that "as the head of the NPF legislature party, it is very important for him to be present in the Assembly from March 13 to March 26".

The NIA has also directed the former Chief Minister to bring all the documents pertaining to the illegal payments.

It also stated that "to cast aspersions on the integrity of a man who wants peace and harmony for Nagaland in particular and north eastern region in general, as having committed crimes against the nation worthy to be looked into by an investigating agency instituted to investigate terror activities, is most perplexing".
