Jalukie police have said that "it is too early" to give out more information and the investigation is underway.

It is suspected that the shooting is the handiwork of rebels as earlier on March 2, three civilians were taken captive by NSCN (U) from the same village.

The Zeliangrong Students’ Union (ZSUN), held a peaceful protest rally in Jalukie against the illegal confinement of civilians and submitted a memorandum seeking the intervention of the Governor of Nagaland Shri RN Ravi into the matter.

The civilians were released on March 15.
