Nagaland: Violence before the election was reported on Monday, and a car was set on fire.

Unidentified miscreants reportedly torched the vehicle of the Naga People’s Front (NPF) candidate for the Tizit constituency in the Mon district of Nagaland on Monday night, in what is believed to be election-related violence.

A few miscreants broke into the home of NPF candidate Tahwang Angh in the town of Tizit and set fire to a vehicle, according to the police.

The reports of violence have surfaced while Amit Shah is in the state ahead of the assembly elections. Shah was in Delhi on Monday to address a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) election rally (NDPP).

The police received a tip at 11:30 p.m. on Monday night that unidentified individuals were threatening the NPF candidate for the Tizit constituency and others.

According to Angh, a dozen miscreants wearing masks broke into his home, abducted two people, and set a vehicle on fire. The two were reportedly released hours later.

Angh, the village chief of Oting, where thirteen civilians were killed in a bungled army operation last year, is running against the incumbent BJP Legislator P Paiwang Konyak and the Congress nominee T Thomas Konyak.

In response to the NPF Tizit president’s written complaint, a case was opened at the Tizit city police station.

The police have filed a complaint against unidentified individuals and are working to identify and apprehend them.

On February 27, Nagaland will hold elections for its 60-member Assembly, and the vote count is set for March 2.
