According to a report, regarding the recent Nagaland killing incident the Congress demanded Amit Shah’s resignation, ₹1 crore for the nearest relative of the deceased and a thorough investigation by the Guwahati HC. 

During a press conference, Congress leaders Gaurav Gogoi along with Nagaland Congress in-charge Ajoy Kumar said, “The SIT that has been announced by the government of Nagaland is an eyewash and the Congress party believes that no meaningful resolution is possible as evidenced by the government’s false statements in the aftermath of the incident in Mon.” 

He further added,  “The Congress Party demands that a commission of inquiry headed by a sitting judge of the Gauhati High Court immediately should be set up as such an independent committee will enable the country to understand the true events that took place on December 4-5 in which 14 (fourteen) people lost their lives.”

The demands came after meeting victims of Nagaland incident 

The demands were made after Congress general secretary Jitendra Singh, Ajoy Kumar and MP Gaurav Gogoi, visited the Dibrugarh Medical College to meet the relatives of those injured during the incident, and submitted a report to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi. 

Home Minister Amit Shah had said in Parliament that a investigation will be completed within a month by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) will be completed within a month. 

In its report, the Congress representatives demanded Amit Shah’s resignation, alleging that the incident in Nagaland is a continuation of the “failed policy” of the BJP government in the North-East. 

Further demands were made to compensate the victims of the incident to the state government with Rs 1 crore and a job with the government. Also,  the injured may be awarded compensation of at least Rs 10 lakhs. 

What happened in the Nagaland killing incident? 

The incident happened on 4th December when coal miners of Oting village of Nagaland were returning home from Tiru on a pickup truck. 

According to the FIR lodged at Tizit police station, “On reaching at Langkhao between Upper Tiru and Oting village, security forces fired at the vehicle without any provocation, resulting to the killing of many Oting villagers and seriously injured many others.”  

Nagaland police had then registered a case against the 21st para special forces for killing 13 civilians suspecting them as militants at Tiru-Oting area of Mon district in Nagaland.
