Unprovoked, the Nagaland State Police begin to disperse the rally using water cannons, a strategy used by the State twice already in a span of a couple of months on unarmed protesting citizens. (Morung Photo)
This is immediately followed by tear gas shelling of the public by the Nagaland State Police. Again, this action was taken without any provocation from the protestors even as they remained beyond the curfew zone (imposed on 100 mts. radius of the Dimapur City Tower). (Morung Photo)
A mother at the protest site was injured after the Dimapur Police used violence on the protesting citizens at today’s rally.
