The Centre has formed a committee to look into the withdrawal of Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act (AFSPA) in Nagaland. The move comes after representatives of the Nagaland government held a meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Delhi on Thursday. The panel will submit its report in 45 days. Registrar General and Census Commissioner of India Vivek Joshi will head the five-member committee and Additional Secretary in the Union Home Ministry Piyush Goyal will be its Member-Secretary. The Chief Secretary and Director General of Police of Nagaland and the DGP of Assam Rifles will be the other members of the committee. The Centre formed the high-level committee three weeks after six civilians were killed in an Army ambush on December 4, and eight more in violence triggered by the incident in Nagaland’s Mon district.
