The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has extended the ban on the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang (NSCN-K) by notifying it as an “unlawful association” under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).
The Naga insurgent group, since it was first banned in 2015, has been involved in 104 violent incidents, resulting in the death of seven security personnel and six civilians, and abduction of 75 civilians, the MHA said in a notification issued on Monday.
The insurgent group had in 2015 abrogated the ceasefire agreement with the Centre and carried out a string of attacks, including killing 18 soldiers in an ambush in Manipur the same year.
The outfit was declared as an unlawful association under section 3(1) of the UAPA.
