AFSPA extended in Nagaland for six more months

Dec 30, 2019 22:22 IST

The Centre on Monday declared the whole of Nagaland as a ‘disturbed’ area under the Armed Forces Special Powers Act for a further period of six months. A notification said the Centre was of the opinion that Nagaland is in such a disturbed condition that the use of armed forces in aid of civil power is necessary. Nagaland has been under AFSPA for almost six decades now and it was not withdrawn even after a framework agreement was signed in 2015, by Naga insurgent group National Socialist Council of Nagaland and government interlocutor RN Ravi in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
