Steps to relocate more forces

The Centre is in a mood to relocate more forces to Golaghat district bordering Nagaland to defuse the escalating tension. These are apart from the existing 200 companies of central paramilitary forces already in the region.

It further wants the 10,000 people displaced resettled under the protection of the central forces.

The Central government also wants Nagaland to announce compensation equal to the Rs. 8 lakh each announced by the Assam government for all those killed in the ethnic clash.
