Expressing serious concern over the pre-dawn attack at Thongtsou village in Noklak district by some miscreants that led to the loss of precious life and property, deputy chief minister Y Patton has assured that the State government would help in ensuring befitting punishment to those found guilty in this diabolical and inhuman act.

Patton, who also holds home portfolio, also appealed for peace and tranquility as the law would take its own course, even as he urged the people and all tribal leaders of Eastern Nagaland to continue extending all possible cooperation and support to “our people” and the government in promoting peaceful coexistence among the Nagas.

Pointing to the State government’s seriousness on the matter, he said a team led by director general of police (DGP) and Commissioner of Nagaland was rushed to the area to take stock of the situation immediately on learning about the incident. 

He claimed that adequate police force was deployed immediately in the sensitive areas and a special investigation team (SIT)  constituted under senior SP rank officer to conduct a detailed probe into the incident. Patton assured that the state government would extend all possible help and assistance to those affected by the unfortunate incident after examination of reports and prayed for early return of normalcy in the area.

It may be recalled that some unidentified miscreants on November 18 attacked Thongtsou village during which one person was killed and several houses burned down.
