Kohima: Deputy chief minister of Nagaland Yanthungo Patton on Monday informed that the Special Investigation Team (SIT) constituted to probe the killings that took place in Oting on December 4 last year, is almost done with the investigation. 

Patton, who is the minister incharge of Home department, said the situation in Nagaland has been largely peaceful, except for the killing incident, which claimed the lives of 14 civilians.

“I assure you justice shall be delivered for the innocent lives lost in that carnage,” he said. He added that the investigation by the SIT is “almost complete”, pending some documentation.

Patton made the comment during the flagging off of 11 newly purchased vehicles for the superintendents of police during a function held at Police Headquarters, Kohima on Monday.

Urging the need to curb the menace of corruption, Patton said that a special drive will be carried out against extortion more rigorously, and will take stringent actions against anti-social elements on a war footing.

Meanwhile, Director General of Police T John Longkumer assured that any individual who causes harm to police personnel while on duty will be dealt with strictly.
