Nagaland: The tension which aroused after armed forces personnel allegedly killed people in Tiru Village, in Mon District took an ugly turn.
Starting from the internet shutdown in the district to shut down in Kohima, all happened in 24 hours.
What happened in the last 24 hours in parts of Nagaland?
Naga Students’ Federation across the Naga inhabited areas on Monday called for 6 hours shut down in Kohima. The reason is obvious, the killing of civilians by armed forces. The Students’ Federation also wrote in a poster ‘Leave the Nagas alone to live in peace’.
Again, on Sunday, in a press release by Chakhesang People Organisation, the local organization declared shutdown of all activities on Hornbill Festival at Pfutsero, Kisama, and elsewhere under CPO jurisdiction until further notice.
On the night of Sunday, the Dimapur Naga Student Union and Dimapur Eastern Naga Students Union condemned the incident too by calling a protest.
Mobile internet and SMS services have also been banned in the Mon District of the state.
The incident happened in Mon district’s Tiru village, when security personnel apparently mistook these people for suspected NSCN insurgents.
According to reports, security personnel assaulted the victims after mim for members of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN).
