The student union held a protest on Saturday demanding SP Tuensang’s transfer within 24 hours and it is reported that the SP has left Tuensang on the Sunday morning itself.
The student body has served the ultimatum addressing to Nagaland DGP T. John Longkumer where it has stated that the relationship of SP with the Tribal Apex Organisations in Tuensang District implies a grave dereliction of his duty and his principles and executions of power had brought forth a disparity, contradicting our traditional ethics and morality.
The SP was also accused of physical assault on one of his constables with Tribal identity and later let the victim repair the accidental damages. The Confederation further demanded an immediate response to the ultimatum.
