Oting massacre: Konyak Union to continue restriction on army movement, patrolling in ‘Konyak soil’
The body has also scheduled the first phase of their mass agitation on December 16, where a public rally would be held all over the district.
Ten days after the killing of 14 innocent civilians at Oting village in Nagaland’s Mon district, the Konyak Union (KU) has decided to continue its “total restriction” on Indian military force convoy and “patrolling within Konyak soil”.
“Total restriction shall continue until justice is delivered to those 14 innocents Konyak youths,” KU president S Howing and general secretary Wango Konyak said, in a fresh regulation issued on the evening of December 14.
The KU also said it will not allow any military recruitment rally within the Mon district and added that no Konyak youth should take part in it.
The KU also directed all those customary landowners to immediately denounce the past land agreement allotted for setting up of military base camps (operating points) within its respective jurisdiction of Naginimara, Tizit, Lampong Sheanghah, Wakching Town, Mon Town, Longshen Town, Sheanghah Wamsa, Longwa, Chenmoho, Chenloishu, Wangti, Aboi, Angjangyang, Tobu and Monyakshu.
The KU further decided "to cut off all ties" with the Indian military forces. It also said that those villages councils/students/societies who have received compensation packages must “immediately denounce any forms of assured packages” from the forces and a "black flag" should be hoisted in vehicles, Konyak schools, offices and in all public movements until justice is served.
Further, the KU urged people to refrain from any celebrations such as night bazaars, picnics and others within the Mon district. However, the union has allowed pre-scheduled activities like weddings and church events.
Meanwhile, the body has scheduled the first phase of their mass agitation on December 16, where a public rally would be held all over the district.
