Funerals Held for 15 Civilians Killed by Security Forces in India’s Nagaland State

HeadlineDec 06, 2021

In India, a funeral was held for the 15 civilians killed by security forces in the northeastern border state of Nagaland over the weekend. The majority of the killings happened on Saturday after security forces say they mistook a group of mine workers for armed fighters. More people were killed in ensuing protests. The state’s chief minister is demanding the Indian government repeal a contested law which allows security forces to kill with impunity in parts of the country.
