MON: Following the recent killings in Nagaland's Mon district, the Konyak civil society organisations (CSOs) have allowed army investigation at ground zero granted they do so without uniforms and guns.
Presidents of Konyak CSOs - Konyak Union (KU), Konyak Nyupuh Sheko Khung (KNSK), and Konyak Students' Union (KSU), informed that it has resolved to allow the Indian Army to conduct inquiry but warned that any visit must be with no arms and uniforms.
The CSOs expressed concern that there were no delegates from ground zero while meeting with the Union Home Minister Amit Shah to authenticate and portray the real incidents and stories about the Oting massacre.
It also expressed concern on the non inclusion of ground zero member in the Enquiry Committee constituted for repealing the AFSPA.
The Konyak CSOs also questioned the press statement from the Indian Army, adding that the replacement of the Indian armed forces from Mon district will make no difference.
The Konyak bodies further added that it has resolved not to rest until those involved in killing the civilians are booked "under applicable civil court and action taken report is brought before the public domain within the penultimate timeframe."
Considering justice delayed is justice denied, the Konyak CSOs will be compelled to convene all Konyak Summit on 18th January 2022, they said.
