Prohibitory orders lifted in Dimapur

By Correspondent

DIMAPUR, March 13 � With law and order situation limping back to normal, Dimapur district administration lifted prohibitory orders clamped under Section 144 CrPC in Dimapur town from 6 am today.

In an order, Dimapur DC and District Magistrate Kesony� Yhome said Section 144 CrPC has been lifted from 6 am on March 13 in view of improvement in law and order situation besides lifting curbs on SMS services. However, restriction on mobile internet services was withdrawn only at 6 pm today.

The DC informed that the situation has improved as there was �no immediate apprehension� of a situation that is likely to disturb public peace or damage to property. The prohibitory orders were imposed on March 4 following acts of vandalism in Dimapur town. On March 5, an irate mob broke open the central jail here, dragged out a rape accused and lynched him in full public view.

Meanwhile, Dimapur police has taken two more into custody for questioning taking the total number of persons arrested in connection with the violent incidents to 50.

IGP (Range) Wabang Jamir, who is also in-charge of Dimapur SP, told media persons on Thursday evening in his office that two more persons were arrested on Thursday, adding most of those arrested were students while one is a government school teacher and another working in a private company. He also said no student leader of any union has so far been arrested and that �ring leaders�, taken into custody, have divulged information about persons shown in video clips and photo images.

Most of those arrested had admitted that they communicated with each other through social media, in particular certain Facebook pages administered by Nagas (Naga Blog and Naga Spear), Wabang said while the State Government has written to Ministry of Information and Technology to bar both the Facebook pages.

Wabang also reiterated the police would make all out efforts to apprehend all those suspected to be involved in the March 5 incident. He revealed that a number of those wanted for questioning were either evading arrest, gone into hiding or fled to other places.

He appealed to the public to provide whatever valuable information on the suspects by contacting mobile number 8730957050 or e-mail at [email protected]
