Konyak Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) have extended their deadline served earlier on the state government by another 10 days, with effect from January 15, 2022 with regard to their demand for justice over the killings of 14 innocent lives on December 4 and 5.

This was decided at the all “Konyak Summit” held at Mon on Friday. 

According to a joint statement issued by the Konyak CSOs-- president Konyak Union (KU) Howing Konyak; president Konyak Nyupuh Sheko Khong (KNSK) Ponglem Konyak and president Konyak Students’ Union (KSU) Noklem Konyak they have warned that in case of non-fulfilment of their demands within the deadline, would lead to Konyaks abstaining from participation in all national events within their customary jurisdictions and as per Eastern Nagaland People’s Organisation’s (ENPO) Longleng resolution of December 14, 2021. 

The “Konyak Summit” was organised on the expiry of the 30-day deadline issued on the government on December 10 against the backdrop of the massacre of 14 innocent Konyak Naga youths on December 4 and 5, 2021 by Indian Army’s 21 Special Para commandos.

 The CSOs also resolved to develop the Genocide Park at the very site allotted by the Mon district administration as demanded by the CSOs. 

It was also resolved that all the remains of December 4 incident at Oting Yatong will be brought to Mon town and preserved at the proposed Genocide Park. The CSOs also resolved that in accordance with the ENPO resolution of December 14, the “non-cooperation” declared against Indian armed forces would continue until justice was delivered. 

They also reiterated that “all rank and file involved in massacring 14 innocent Konyak youths on December 4 and 5 must be prosecuted in the applicable civil court” and “justice taken report must be brought before the public” as mentioned their memorandum to President of India. The CSOs also resolved to demand that all designated army camps located in civilian areas in Mon district be vacated/relocated away from civilian areas.

They also demanded that the certified reports of the state’s Special Investigation Team (SIT) and army’s Court of Inquiry (CoI) should be shared with Konyak Union (KU) for perusal after necessary formalities were completed by both parties.

The summit also endorsed the demand of Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF), mentioned in the latter’s memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December 24, 2021.

While endorsing the Konyak CSOs to initiate talks at higher level for ensuring immediate justice and “solution basing on their demands and its early regulations that was served on December 13, 2021”, the summit also resolved to submit a memorandum to the State government in this regard.

Meanwhile, the SIT report is yet to be completed and it is likely to take more time since the forensic reports from Guwahati and Hyderabad laboratories have not been received. This was disclosed by additional DGP (Law and order) Sandeep Tamgadge to the media on January 13.

Further, Tamgadge, who is also supervising the SIT, however, said that putting out the preliminary report in public domain, especially when the investigation was incomplete, was not legally tenable.
