Dimapur, Sep. 3 (EMN): The security situation in Nagaland was reported to have worsened in 2021 as compared to the past three years, i.e., 2018-2020, as per a report by the Ministry of Home Affairs.

The report stated that in 2021, 47 security incidents were reported in the state, one extremist killed, 277 extremists arrested, eight extremists surrendered and no security forces and civilians killed.

However, it may be mentioned that on December 4, 2021, the Indian security forces shot dead 13 civilians in a botched ambush and subsequent violence at Oting in Mon district, and one more civilian was killed during a protest in connection with the incident on the next day. One security personnel also succumbed to injuries inflicted during a violent conflict triggered by the firing incident.

The victims of this incident were, however, not included in the Union ministry’s latest report, as it showed no causality from security forces and civilians during the year. 

The report also stated that no arms were surrendered, while 103 arms were recovered and 54 persons were reported kidnapped.

The Northeast region reported a total of 209 incidents, wherein 40 extremists were killed, 686 extremists arrested, eight security forces and 23 civilians killed, 1473 extremists surrendered, 471 arms surrendered, 367 arms recovered, and 94 persons kidnapped.

According to the report, Nagaland and Manipur reported the highest number of cases related to extremists, while Mizoram and Meghalaya reported the lowest.
