On December 4, eight miners left the coal mines to spend the weekend with their families. Six of them were gunned down in the Mon massacre by the 21 Para Commandos of the Assam Rifles in what was supposed to be an ambush for militants at Oting village.

Over the days, several narratives of the incident came to the fore, but none touched upon the ground realities from Oting in Mon district of Nagaland.

Weeks later, the situation in Nagaland continues to be tense as the incident did not only raise concerns over the violation of human rights in Northeast India but also revived demands to repeal the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act or AFSPA.
