Trader killed for refusing to pay ransom

Utter lawlessness has become the order of the day in Dimapur where miscreants can attack anybody for refusing to pay ransom.
A section of miscreants, of late, have been extorting money from a number of non Naga trader in the commercial town.

Mention may be made of the Sunday’s where unidentified miscreants shot dead a trader from Assam for refusing to pay ransom they demanded earlier.

Initial police investigation suggests it case of extortion where Ashis Saha, a trader who hails from Jorhat was killed only for refusing to pay money.

The incident took place at Shyam bazar in the heart of the commercial hub where four miscreants had an altercation with Ashis where he refused to board on their vehicle. Suddenly, one of the miscreants sprayed several rounds of bullets on the trader from a point blank range.

Then the gang of miscreants left the spot without any hindrance. Ashis was rushed to the nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead.

This is not for the first time when non Naga people face wrath of the miscreants. The commercial hub hit media headlines across the nation four months back when an irate mob lynched a rape accused from Karimganj at a public spot after dragging him out of the Dimapur Central Jail in full view of the hapless security forces.
