Twenty four after the death of 13 people in NSCN group clash, the Dimapur district in Nagaland is ready to go a joint operation to flush out all rebel outfits. Sources here say, the decision to launch the joint operation was finalised on Wednesday evening. The decision was taken following the frequent inter-factional clashes between the rival factions of the NSCN in spite of repeated suggestions and instructions of the district administration to the underground outfits to vacate civilian places. The meeting was convened by Dimapur Deputy Commissioner and was attended by Nagaland Home Minister Imkong L Imchen, Additional Director General of Police (Operation) O Alem, Dimapur Superintendent of Police Lirimo Lotha, Assam Rifles officials, CRPF, Indian Reserve Battalion (IRB) and Nagaland Armed Police (NAP), representatives from Naga Council, Naga Mothers' Association of Dimapur, Gaon Burahs (GB) and Dobhasis (DB) and several tribal Hohos.
The meeting finalised the operation and decided to retaliate if any of the faction resorted to firing while conducting flushing operations.
Sources say the entire Dimapur district had been divided into five zones and the Coordination Group had appointed five Sector Magistrates and five Sector Commanders, which included Assam Rifles, CRPF and NAP. With a view to ensuring security and safety for the citizens, the appointed Magistrates and Commanders would work in co-ordination with ward GBs and DBs.
