FCI employees released hours after detention by NSCN
Kohima: The Khaplang faction of the NSCN
detained three employees and a contractor of the Food
Corporation of India`s regional office at Dimapur for several
hours before releasing them.
The four were released in front of news persons after the
outfit interrogated them to elicit information on why for the
last 20 years all contract work for Manipur under the FCI had
gone to Asui Muivah Firm, owned by a brother of rival outfit
NSCN (I-M) general secretary Th Muivah, when there were many
other qualified contractors.
The outfit alleged that some police personnel and
NSCN (I-M) members were present when a tender was floated on
September 30, 2008 in the FCI office, Dimapur.
Demanding cancellation of the contract and starting of
the tender process anew, the outfit said the four persons were
asked to "clarify whether there was any link between the NSCN
(I-M) and the FCI contracts in Manipur".
