Shillong, Dec 05: The North East Students’ Organisation (NESO) which comprises of the representing eight major students movement in the seven North Eastern states, through this press release is expressing its deep shock and anger against the barbaric act of the security forces at Oting village in Mon District of Nagaland.

The NESO alleged that the armed security forces massacre the innocent villagers who were returning home from work in a pickup truck resulting to the death of numerous persons and injuries to many others on the evening of the 4th December 2021 this is heinous act deserves the highest condemnation.

This incident brings back horrific memories of the past where on numerous occasions the security forces massacre, torture the innocent villagers and even rape the women folk for days on end in the name of fighting insurgency.

It is to be mentioned that the armed forces have been operating in NE with impunity and they are further emboldened with the imposition of a Draconian Law known as the Armed Forces Special Powers Act 1958 (AFSPA) in which the Government of India has not only refused to repeal but decided to continue.

The imposition of this draconian act even though there have been massive peoples movement for the repeal of this Act. NESO feels that the Government of India does not want peace to prevail in North East so that it can continue with its plan to militarise the region and can suppress the voice of the indigenous peoples through military power.

The NESO demands that the Government of India should remove and repeal AFSPA if it is really concern about the welfare and well being of the people of North East otherwise it will only further alienate the people of the region, said Mr.Samuel B Jyrwa Chairman NESO and Sinam Prakash Singh Secretary general of NESO in the press statement.
