Nagaland government has set up an enquiry team headed by principal secretary, home, C. J. Ponraj to investigate into the September 15 assault and firing incident at Golaghat area by Nagaland police against All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) members.
Informing this, Nagaland home minister, Imkong L. Imchen said any err or indiscipline committed on the part of Nagaland Police would be dealt with as per the disciplinary rules of the Nagaland Police.
Imchen also urged the AASU to reconsider their proposed agitation stating that Assam and Nagaland has to co-exist and that any responsible organization should keep the principle of co-existence firmly. “As neighbours sometimes irritant happens but things have to be addressed in spirit of cooperation as well as forgive and forget. I therefore, fervently appeal to the leadership of AASU to reconsider the agitation programme over this isolated incident,” Imchen said in a statement.
Indefinite blockade
The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) Saturday began “indefinite economic blockade” against Nagaland in protest against September 15 incident, reports said. “Unless and until the guilty jawans of Nagaland Police were punished the blockade will continue,” AASU vice president Jatin Bora said.
Meanwhile, Amidst escalating tension on Assam-Nagaland border, the chief secretaries of the two states met today, albeit in keeping with the Supreme Court’s direction to resolve the over two-decade-old boundary dispute through mediation.
The meeting was attended by chief secretaries of both the states, representatives of the union home ministry, besides the two mediators, the Assam Tribune reported.
The meeting went into the progress of the process and examined whether it would be possible to resolve the dispute through mediation. Assam government officials were tight lipped and declined to divulge what transpired at the meeting.
