DIMAPUR, May 16 - Nagaland Deputy Chief Minister Y Patton on Thursday condemned the grenade blast in Guwahati on Wednesday.
In a condemnation note, Patton said while the overall law and order situation in the whole of North East is peaceful, such cowardly acts by some disgruntled elements have caused panic and fear psychosis in the minds of the people.
He urged the law enforcement agencies to bring the perpetrators to book at the earliest. He also prayed for speedy recovery of those injured in the incident.
Patton, who is also the Home Minister of the State, alerted Nagaland police to be vigilant and take pre-emptive measures, particularly in public places, to avert any such subversive activities in the State. He also directed the police and other intelligence agencies in the State to be vigilant.
