Mon killings: A year later ‘Not dead, nor alive… just suffering

Mon killings: A year later ‘Not dead, nor alive… just suffering

The white truck, the missing thumb, the cool person who is currently a zinda lash, the slug marks — day to day updates in Oting of December 4, 2021, when 13 residents were killed in a Military snare followed by a conflict. The Sunday Express returns to the Nagaland town where it’s difficult to continue on: “If by some stroke of good luck it was simply simple”

THE WHITE get truck actually remains at the spot — its number plate missing, its windscreen scar set apart with slug openings, its sides covered with the equivalent fraying yellow canvas from the day of the lethal assault, which killed six of its inhabitants, and harmed two forever.

On December 4, 2021, the Indian Armed force’s 21 Para Unique Power had started shooting at the truck — conveying eight excavators from Tiru coming back to Oting in Nagaland’s Mon area — confusing them with radicals of the restricted Public Communist Chamber of Nagaland (Khaplang-Yung Aung) bunch.
