Following the recent killing of 13 civilians and one security force jawan in Nagaland’s Mon district, citizens gathered at the Kisama Heritage Village took to the streets demanding justice for the departed souls.
Earlier on Sunday, at least seven Nagaland tribes condemned the killings and withdrew participation from the ongoing Hornbill Festival in the state.
Several opposition leaders also took to Twitter, condemning the horrific incident asking the government for a fitting reply. Nagaland CM Neiphiu Rio and Union Minister Amit Shah informed that a high-level SIT would probe the case.
Meanwhile, mobile Internet services have been snapped in the state in order to bring the law and order situation under control.
