Maha Cong chief raises question over civilian killings in Nagaland


Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee chief Nana Patole on Monday raised questions over the firing by the Indian Army in Mon district in Nagaland in which 14 civilians were killed, and wanted clarification from the Central government whether the firing was from Chinese troops.

“The Chinese have entered many areas in Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland and the government should tell the truth to the nation, whether the Chinese troopers were behind the killings. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has time and again said that Chinese troopers have occupied some areas in Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland,” Patole told reporters here.

Though the Army has ordered a probe into the incident, the government is duty bound to reveal the truth to the nation, Patole, a former Speaker of Maharashtra Assembly, added.
