NPP candidate escapes bid on life

MARCUS KANYAK

KOHIMA: A Nagaland poll candidate had a narrow escape from a bid on his life on Friday keeping the pre poll political landscape on the boil. He is none other than T Chalukumba, the National People's Party candidate who escaped from the jaws of death on Friday. The incident took place in the evening as he was travelling in Mokokchung where an unidentified person opened fire at him.

 The attempt was aborted by his personal security guard Constable Imkong Ozukum who managed to bring the situation under control forcing the miscreant to vanish. Immediately after it, Chalukumba moved the Mokokchung police station and lodged a complaint against the unnamed accused.
