Human Rights Violation in Nagaland

The incidence of human rights violation by the security forces in Nagaland is a never ending story since independence and still continues to haunt the people, says the convener of the Naga People’s Movement for Human Rights mr. Neingulo Krome in a document made a available to Eastern Panorama.
To save innocent men, women and children from torture and repression Mr. krome pleads for immediate revocation of these “black laws” which include the Assam Maintenance of Public Order, 1953, the Nagaland Security Regulations, 1962 and the North East Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, 1972, which protect the violators of human rights.
The Naga People’s Movement for Human Rights (NPMHR) was formed on September 9, 1978, in response to the Naga People’s demand for a body to protect and promote human rights.
