The call was given by the Naga Students’ Federation to observe the six-hour protest today in all areas of the state and appealed to the Naga people cutting across artificial boundaries to refrain from any sort of merry-making or festivities for the next five 5 days and to join in observing a 5-day mourning period from today.

Meanwhile, NSF expressed shock and condemned the heinous crime perpetrated upon the Naga civilians by the Indian armed forces, killing 15 precious Naga lives and injuring multiple others, in the guise of acting upon intelligence inputs, which failed them miserably. The federation conveyed condolences to the bereaved family members and assured continued solidarity and prayer support. NSF demanded the Centre revoke AFSP Act from all Naga inhabited areas without further delay.

The federation demanded a special Assembly session to adopt a resolution for revocation of the controversial AFSPA. NSF also demanded the announcement of befitting compensation by the Government to all the victims of the Oting massacre and also to those injured in the incident.
