He also said that the government has instituted an enquiry to go into the details of the entire incident.
“Apart from taking severe action against the guilty, any short comings or lapses on the part of the public servants will be dealt with seriously,” Zeliang said.
Further, the Nagaland CM assured “all possible steps are being taken to ensure safety and security of people from Assam, as well as for those from other parts of the country”.

Do not spread rumours through social media: T R Zeliang

Feeling that social media users played a role in Thursday’s jailbreak by a mob in Dimapur and subsequent killing of a rape accused, Nagaland Chief Minister T.R. Zeliang Saturday warned social media users against spreading rumours that could lead to communal flare ups.
Zeliang said some groups and individuals are using social networking sites to spread false rumours and libellous comments in an attempt to stir up communal feelings and public unrest.
Urging social media users to be more responsible and act as a medium for spreading the truth and good news, he said his government respects freedom of speech of its citizens, but will not remain a mere spectator to any social networking site and its users acting as channels to create communal unrest.
“There are certain elements who are trying to politicise the whole incident in order to gain undue political mileage and I appeal to the people not to be misled by the false propaganda of such unscrupulous elements,” he said. (IANS).
