Mokokchung, July 28: The Mokokchung Town Lanur Telongjem (MTLT) is totally appalled over the assault of a woman by her husband on the night of June 16, 2020 at Dilong Ward in Mokokchung town.
The way the helpless woman was treated by her husband, one Mr. Tiatemsu of Ungma village who tortured and struck his wife with firewood and other blunt objects is beyond human comprehension. Such sadistic acts and sadists do not deserve to roam free in a civilized society.
The MTLT does not condone any act of domestic violence and as such the MTLT strongly condemns the brutal act of Mr. Tiatemsu in the strongest term.
Nonetheless, the MTLT appreciates the Mokokchung Police for taking prompt action in arresting and booking the culprit under relevant sections of the law. It is our hope that the law will take its own course of action and the culprit be punished in the sternest manner so that such brutal acts of domestic violence do not recur in the society. The MTLT further expresses our sympathy with the victim and wishes her a speedy recovery.
