Nagaland violence continues, section 144 imposed in the state
Nagaland: Violence continued in Kohima and Dimapur districts of Nagaland after a conflict between police and mob broke out by those who opposed 33 per cent reservation for women in the Urban Local Bodies elections.
The government imposed section 144 in the districts and also suspended mobile services in the area.
The protesters threatened Nagaland chief minister Zeliang ruling Naga People's Front (NPF) president Shurhozelie to resign from the post or else they will place the bodies of the youth in front of their homes.
The mob burnt several government bodies and vandalised many vehicles and marched to secretariat building. Paramilitary forces, however, were deployed to control the situation.
It may be mentioned that on Tuesday two youths were killed in the fight between the protesters and the police. The election which was to be held in February has also been cancelled.
