A National People's Party (NPP) supporter was killed and another seriously injured by suspected Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagalim-Isaac Muivah (NSCN-IM) rebels in the Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh.
At Kheti village on Friday night NSCN-IM member Eli Ketok and his group allegedly assaulted Jaley Anna and Khamney Aboh after abducting them from their house.
"Anna succumbed to the beating, while Aboh is in a critical condition," NPP Spokesperson Nima Sangey Saling said.
According to Saling, Anna took the name of Eli Ketok for the assault. He said an FIR has been lodged at the Khonsa police station by Anna's wife Chathien and NPP's district President Naklam Besai.
Condemning the incident, Meghalaya Chief Minister and NPP national President Conrad Sangma tweeted: "Saddened to hear that our party worker was killed in Arunachal's Tirap district. May we learn to respect each other and fight election in its true spirit. I extended my condolences to the bereaved family of Jaley Anna."
