Anguished, says Amit Shah after Nagaland security operation goes wrong

Chandigarh, December 5

Home Minister Amit Shah said he was anguished at the news of civilian deaths in a security operation in Nagaland.

“Anguished over an unfortunate incident in Nagaland’s Oting, Mon,” Shah said in a tweet. “I express my deepest condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives. A high-level SIT constituted by the State govt will thoroughly probe this incident to ensure justice to the bereaved families.”

Thirteen people were killed after security operations went wrong in Mon, Nagaland. Six of these, all daily wagers, were killed in what the security forces have since claimed was a case of mistaken identity.

This toll is likely to go up, sources said.

Seven others were allegedly killed in firing that followed when angry locals attacked security forces. The army, which has since issued an official statement regretting the incident and announcing an inquiry, said a jawan was also killed.
