WATCH | "AFSPA Doesn't Mean Kill Indiscriminately" Says Lone Nagaland MP
Lone Nagaland MP In Lok Sabha Tokheho Yepthomi Said On Civilian Killings In Lok Sabha That AFSPA Doesn't Mean "Kill Indisicriminately"
MP Yepthomi made a statement in Lok SAbha three days ago on the civilian killings by 21 Para (SF) troops which are commanded by the Indian Army. The Home Minister Amit Shash has said that the "unfortunate" incident was triggered by "mistaken identity" and th subsequent violence by angry civilians led to further fiting in self defence, which led to more deaths and injuries. Responding to this, Yepthomi said that the identity of the passengers in the vehcle should have been checked before firing at them, and demanded a high level inquiry and ₹5 Lakh compensation to each of the deceased's families.
