All Nagaland Taxi Association (ANTA) Wokha Unit and ANTA Medziphema unit strongly condemned the murder of a taxi driver identified as Vijay, whose body was recovered by police at Khovanullah, Dimapur on July 16, 2017.
In a condemnation note ANTA Wokha unit president, Hayithung Odyuo and general secretary, Lipenthung Ovung termed the act “as a beastly act which is intolerable and unacceptable in the society”.  It further appealed to the law enforcing agencies to nab the culprit at the earliest and award befitting punishment. Meanwhile the association conveyed heartfelt condolence to the bereaved family members.
ANTA Medziphema unit stated that the taxi drivers despite the deplorable condition of NH-29 have been plying between Dimapur and Kohima. However, it claimed that commuters often either harass or threaten taxi drivers, adding that “this time it went to an extent of killing one of our drivers which is highly condemnable.” In this regard, the unit has appealed to the law enforcing authorities to bring the culprit to justice at the earliest so as to uphold the spirit of ANTA motto “service to public”.
Meanwhile, the union has conveyed condolences to the members of the bereaved family. “Our hearts go out to you during this trying time and may our prayers serve as comfort to you and your loved ones,” it said and prayed that the departed soul rest in peace.
