Nagaland pays tribute to Mao martyrs  

Rich tribute paid to Late Dikho Loshuo and Late Neli Chakho, on the 12 anniversary of their martyrdom, at Mao Gate.

Different Naga Civil Society Organizations paid rich tribute to Late Dikho Loshuo and Late Neli Chakho, on the 12 anniversary of their martyrdom, at Mao Gate in Manipur’s Senapati district on Friday.

On May 6, back in 2010, residents of Mao held a silent protest rally at Mao Gate after the Government of Manipur denied entry to Th Muivah, General Secretary of the NSCN-IM into his hometown.

The protest quickly escalated to Police firing when the Government of Manipur declared Martial Law and sent its commando and IRB personnel to occupy the town.

In the firing incident, 2 young students Dikho Loshuo, a BA 2nd-year student of St. Joseph College, Jakhama, and Neli Chakho, a BA 2nd-year student of St Joseph Evening College, Bangalore both hailing from Mao Kalinamei village were killed by the Manipur Commando and IRB personnel, while injuring many others including men, women, and children.

Naga Civil Society Organizations including Naga Hoho, Mao Council, United Naga Council, Naga Mothers’ Association, Naga Women’s Union, Senapati District Students Association, Naga Students Federation, All Naga Students Association Manipur, Naga People’s Organisation, and Senapati District Women’s Association paid tributes at the Martyrs Park.
