Nagaland: Konyak Union restricts media at Oting
Dimapur, Dec. 8 (EMN): As the 7-day mourning over the loss of lives in Mon enters the second day with flags at civil organisation offices flying at half mast, students wearing black badges, and business establishments and vehicles putting up black flags, the Konyak Union (KU) has asked the press fraternity not to interfere or cover stories at Oting village.
The union said in a statement that it is needed pave way for smooth investigation and not to disturb the bereaved family members. It added that the union will convene a press conference at 12 pm on December 11.
While acknowledging both the central and state governments for announcing financially support to the victims’ families, the union said it will monitor if the ex gratia reaches the families.
The KU went on to state that it will fight till justice is delivered, adding that the trust between the Konyak community and the Indian army and the Indian Union built over the decades had be destroyed on December 4.
