The Deputy Commissioner and District Magistrate of Mon district in Nagaland, Thavaseelan K, has ordered for extension of the Prohibitory order of night curfew along the indo Myanmar border for another three months.
According to sources, the Prohibitory order under section 144 Cr. P. C for enforcement of night curfew from 10 pm to 3 pm in the 3 km belt along the Indo-Myanmar border under Mon district has been extended for 3 months up to February 21, 2020, as per an order issued yesterday.
It may be mentioned here that night curfew has been clamped in Mon district of Nagaland bordering Arunanchal Pradesh, Assam and Myanmar after the abrogation of 14-year-old ceasefire between Khaplang faction of National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN) and the Centre, and subsequent ambush of the security forces at various places.
The ceasefire with the government was abrogated by NSCN-K on March 28, 2019.
