Centre Regrets Nagaland Deaths: Amit Shah

New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah told Parliament on Monday that the centre regretted 14 civilians’ death in Nagaland following a goofed-up Army operation. As Shah read out statements in both Houses, the opposition MPs screamed objections and demanded the repeal of AFSPA.

“Government of India expresses regrets over the incident and condolences to those killed… a SIT has been formed and has been directed to complete investigation in a month. Situation is tense but under control. All agencies have to ensure such incidents do not happen in future,” Amit Shah said in the Lok Sabha.

The opposition MPs in Rajya Sabha screamed “nahi chalegi, nahi chalegi (this won’t do, this won’t do)”. “The centre has examined the situation and reached the conclusion the incidents such as this — where innocent villagers were killed — shouldn’t be repeated,” Shah said.

Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio slammed the centre for extending AFSPA. “Nagaland and Naga people have always opposed AFSPA. It should be repealed,” Rio said. “This draconian law needs to go… there are laws to take care of the situation… but this law is hitting the image of our country,” he added. Rio’s NDPP is an ally of the BJP at the Centre.
