The Naga Tribal body has demanded swift and strict action against the personnel involved in the operation and also lifting of Army's special powers

Angry over the killing of 14 civilians in a botched up Army operation on Sunday, the Naga tribes body has made five demands of the government. These demands include swift and strict action against the personnel involved in the operation and also lifting of Army's special powers.

The first demand is to immediately set up an independent inquiry committee under a competent investigating agency. The body has also demanded that two members of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that the government has constituted to probe the incident must be from Naga civil society.

The Union has demanded that all Army personnel involved must be booked and punished under law of the land and that details of action taken against Army personnel be put out in the public domain within 30 days.
