At least 13 civilians were gunned down by security forces in Mon district of Nagaland as the Indian Army confirmed the incident while terming it as an unfortunate one.
The incident took place between Oting and Tiru villages when some daily-wage labourers were returning home in a pick-up van from a coal mine in the evening on December 4, the police said.
The vehicle was allegedly fired upon by the Army personnel, who were conducting an operation in the area after receiving inputs on the movement of militants of Yung Aung faction of proscribed outfit NSCN (K), an official said, adding that an investigation is underway to ascertain whether the incident was a case of mistaken identity
