Kohima, Feb 4: The Dimapur Naga Students' Union (DNSU) has called for a public rally on February 7 to protest the recent spate of murders and abductions in and around Dimapur.
A release, issued by DNSU president Solomon L Awomi and general secretary I Mangyang Jamir here today, stated that the rally would be organised to protest the unprecedented increase in abductions and killings which had created fear psychosis among the citizens of Dimapur town.
It said the DNSU would also raise its voice against the various anti-social activities and urged the students as well as the public to attend the rally.
Meanwhile, the business community in Dimapur today opened their shops after three days following the assurance of the district administration that there would be no more abductions, intimidations or extortions.
The business community also warned that if any businessman was threatened by militants, they would go for an indefinite closure of the market.
All shops and business establishments in Dimapur were closed following the abduction of a poultry dealer by unknown miscreants, who demanded Rs 20 lakh as ransom. Later, he was shot dead on January 31, following failure to pay the ransom.
