Naga heritage village remains partially closed

Kohima: The Naga heritage village where the mega Hornbill Festival is hosted remains partially closed as the 22nd edition of the festival has been called off following the killing of 14 civilians by security forces in Mon district.  

December had kicked off with the Hornbill Festival showcasing the state’s rich culture, tradition and heritage. However, all the festivities turned into mourning and condemnation following the Oting killings.

Earlier on Tuesday, Government spokesperson Neiba Kronu told journalists that the decision to call off the festival was taken following the state cabinet’s emergency meet.

Kronu said entrepreneurial activities will, however, continue at Kisama but the morungs will remain closed.
