Not involved in Rhino poaching: ZRO
CCPUR, 7th Oct: Zomi Re-Unification Organisation (ZRO) has clarified that no member of the organisation were involved in Rhino poaching and news reports linking the organisation with Rhino poaching were wrong, baseless and unfounded. In a clarification note, ZRO joint secretary TK Many said that ZRA has never indulged or abetted Rhino poaching in the past, present and will never do so in the future. ZRA has no connection whatsoever with United People's Liberation Front (UPRF) whose leader Martin Guite was killed in an encounter with Assam police on October 5, 2020 at Manja in Karbi Anglong district Assam in connection with Rhino poaching, TK Many said. Refuting the report filed by Nagaland based EastMojo that ZRA was formed by NSCN-IM to fight Kukis in Churachandpur district in Manipur, ZRO joint secretary maintained that ZRA is indeed a Zomi army formed to fight the noble cause of reunifying the Zo people with active and unstinted support from its people.
