Dimapur district administration Thursday promulgated Section 144 of the Cr P.C. 1973 in and around Nagaland Zoological Park with immediate effect. Deputy Commissioner and district magistrate, Dimapur Maong Aier issued the order in view of the situation in the area and to prevent breach of peace and tranquility. The order prohibits assembly of more than five persons or carrying of any lethal weapon. The order was issued after “encroachers”, reportedly belonging to ‘Thilixu B’, forcibly entered the park and buried the body of an old lady, right inside the park today. The old woman had reportedly passed away Wednesday. According to forest department officials, a large number of ‘encroachers’ arrived at the site and after scaling the walls with the help of ladders at around 8 a.m. , overpowered forest and police personnel stationed at the park and then buried the dead body right in the middle of the park. The official sources said the since the encroachers appeared in large numbers, the personnel were not able to control the mob. Meanwhile, the district administration has issued 24-hour deadline to those responsible remove the body from the site.
