Taking to his Twitter handle, Khandu wrote: “My heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased who lost their lives in an unfortunate incident at Oting village in Mon district of Nagaland. Prayers for speedy recovery of those injured and appeal all to maintain peace.”

Demand for repeal of AFSPA: Meanwhile, the Arunachal Pradesh unit of the National People’s Party (NPP) condemned the Oting village incident and demanded repeal of the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act (AFSPA), 1958 in the Northeast region.

“The recent incident of ambush by security forces leading to a massacre of 13 innocent unarmed civilians near Oting village in Mon district in Nagaland, paints an atrocious heartbreaking picture.

This is a stark reminder of how armed forces have with impunity misused AFSPA as a repressive tool to enforce in a reign of systemic widespread terror on citizens of NE disrupting every peace process. AFSPA must be repealed,” Arunachal Pradesh NPP president Mutchu Mithi said in a

statement here.

“We condemn this tragic incident and demand that perpetrators must be brought to justice immediately. In this hour of tragedy, we offer our heartfelt condolences to the families of those who have lost their precious lives and stand in solidarity with the people of Nagaland,” the party said.
