HNLC vows to take action against Rymbui, two surrendered cadres

Shillong, Aug 13: The HNLC has threatened to take action against Home Minister Lahkmen Rymbui and two other surrendered cadres of the outfit hours after its former general secretary Cherishstarfield Thangkhiew was killed at his residence at Mawlai Kynton Massar.

“We have decided to revenge Herman, Treng and especially Lahkmen Rymbui for without his order, the incident of taking his (Cherishstarfield) life could not have happened…We will see for how many years Rymbui will sit on that chair,” the HNLC general secretary-cum-publicity secretary Sainkupar Nongtraw said in a statement issued on Friday.

“It is also urged that people, NGOs or surrendered cadres should refrain from working with the two (Herman and Treng) because if anything happens to them, the outfit will not be responsible,” Nongtraw said while extending condolences to the bereaved family of Cherishstarfield.

Nongtraw expressed shock at the killing of its ex-leader and said, “In fact Cherishstarfield was being used by the IB and the SB all this while for him to consult with the outfit for talks. Our letters to the IB and the SB were sent through him.”

He also claimed that five years ago, Cherishstarfield received death threat from Herman Pakyntein. “What has happened today was because the SHNLC like Herman Pakyntein, Treng Saw are involved with the police to take Cherishstarfield’s life,” he said.

“Kynsai War and Herman are indulging in collecting money in the name of the outfit especially from non tribals as per our information and the same was being divided among themselves,” Nongtraw alleged.

Stating that Cherishstarfield was not involved with the activities of the HNLC, he said, “He was however acting as a mediator between the outfit and the SB and IB.”

Nongtraw  also urged the NGOs to do their own investigation to find out whether Cherishstarfield was involved with the outfit or not.
