Kohima, Feb 16 (PTI) A Nagaland government employee

was manhandled and abducted by people of neighbouring Manipur

from a disputed border area following an altercation over

cutting of firewood, the Nagaland assembly was informed on

Tuesday.

The employee, a ''dobashi'' (interpreter) by post, was

taken away by the residents of Tungjoy village in Manipur''s

Sepanati district at around noon on Monday and he was released

late at night following intervention of the governments of the

two states, Nagaland Deputy Chief Minister in-charge of Home,

Y Patton, said.

Patton made the statement after opposition Naga

People''s Front (NPF) MLA Chotisuh Sazo raised at the Zero Hour

the issue of the dobashi''s abduction near Khezhakeno village

in Chida area of Phek district.

Sazo also asked the government about measures taken by

it to settle the boundary dispute between the two states.

He said that around two years ago, a group of people

from Tungjoy village had burnt down structures erected for a

proposed visit of the Nagaland governor to a lake in the same

area.

The deputy chief minister said that around 150-200

people of Khezhakeno village of Nagaland went to Kahuzo forest

area in Tungjoy to get firewood on February 12 and when a

policeman of Manipur reached the spot and tried to stop them,

they did not recognise his authority.

On Monday, 500 odd people of Tungjoy came to Nagaland

side and started cutting firewood, and when policemen and the

dobashi went there, the mob overpowered them, Patton said.

They took the dobashi with them while returning and he

was released at around 11.30 pm after the chief secretary and

the director general of police of both the states discussed

the issue, Patton informed the assembly.

An FIR is being registered by the superintendent of

police of Phek district, he said.

The SP has been directed to make an enquiry into the

incident and submit a report to the Police Headquarters, the

deputy CM said.

Meanwhile, the Nagaland Assembly on Tuesday passed the

Nagaland Goods and Services Tax (Fourth Amendment) Bill, 2020,

by voice vote.

Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio introduced the Bill on

February 15.

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) was implemented in

Nagaland on 1 July, 2017.

The Centre has amended the Central Goods and Services

Tax Act, 2017 last year and requested state governments to

make corresponding amendments to their respective Acts, Rio

said. PTI NBS
