Asaduddin Owaisi gives adjourn notice to discuss Nagaland violence

New Delhi: Asaduddin Owaisi, the head of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), issued an adjournment notice in the Lok Sabha on Monday to discuss the killings of civilians in Nagaland. In his notice of adjournment, Owaisi noted that it has been reported that at least 14 civilians have been killed by security forces in a "bungled" operation.

After an army operation to hunt Naga militants went wrong late Saturday, at least 13 civilians and an Assam Rifles trooper were murdered, while 14 people were injured in a sequence of violent clashes in Nagaland's Mon area.

"This is a subject of critical public concern since it directly affects Indian residents' civil liberties. I respectfully request that today's House business be postponed so that the House can address this matter urgently "he stated

Security forces are suspected of mistaking the victims for members of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang-Yung Aung and firing on them, according to villagers and sources. Angry residents attacked security forces, setting fire to at least three vehicles. According to defence sources, the security personnel were severely injured in the incident, with one man succumbing to his injuries.
