Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday made a statement in Lok Sabha on Nagaland civilian killings.
Shah said, “All agencies must ensure such an unfortunate incident is not repeated while fighting anti-insurgency,” Shah said in Lok Sabha.
He said the situation in Nagaland is tense but under control, and Additional Secretary Northeast is holding a review meeting in Kohima.
The Congress and NCP staged a walkout as the Home Minister spoke.
At 15:30 hours HM Amit Shah said that Army had received info on movement of extremists in Oting, Mon. On that basis, 21 commandos laid an ambush in suspected area. A vehicle reached there, it was signalled to stop but it tried to flee. On suspicion of the vehicle carrying extremists, it was fired upon.
He said, “After the incident, on Dec 5 evening, an agitated crowd of around 250 people vandalised the company operating base (COB) of Assam Rifles in Mon city & set the COB building on fire. Assam Rifles had to fire bullets to disperse the crowd. This caused death of one more civilian”.
Current situation is tense but under control. On 5th Dec, Nagaland DGP & Commissioner visited the site. FIR registered & keeping the seriousness in mind, probe handed over to State Crime Police Station. SIT formed, it has been directed to complete probe within a month, the Home Minister told the parliament. He further said, “As a result, one jawan of the security forces died; many other jawans injured. Security forces had to resort to firing for self-defence & to disperse crowd. This caused death of 7 more civilians, some others injured. Local admn-Police tried to bring the situation to normalcy.
6 out of the 8 people in vehicle died. It was later found to be a case of mistaken identity. 2 others who were injured were taken to nearest health centre by Army. After receiving news of this, local villagers surrounded the Army unit, set 2 vehicles on fire and attacked them, the Home Minister added.
