The Nagaland government had on Wednesday expanded the five-member probe team to a 22-member one and divided it into seven small groups.

Officials said the government wants to complete the probe into the violence as soon as possible for quick justice.

On December 4, six coal miners returning from work were killed in a botched anti-terrorist operation by the security forces at Oting village, while seven others were gunned down when angry villagers scuffled with them after discovering the bullet-riddled bodies of the labourers on an Army truck.

One security personnel was also killed in the melee. Another civilian was killed when a mob attacked an Assam Rifles camp at Mon town the next day.
