INDIAN ARMY INQUIRY TEAM TO VISIT NAGALAND FIRING SITE ON DECEMBER 29

An inquiry team of the Indian Army will visit the site in Oting, Nagaland where 14 civilians were killed in a botched up anti-insurgency operation by the security forces. The team will visit the incident site on December 29 and will also be present at Tizit Police Station in Mon District on the same day, reported news agency ANI citing the public relations officer of the defence ministry in Kohima.

“Indian Army Inquiry Team solicits from the public at large any primary information (not forwarded or not from secondary source) pertaining to the incident. Any person having such information and desirous of deposing before the Inquiry is requested to do so at Tizit Police Station,” ANI quoted Defence PRO, Kohima, as saying.

Last week, the Indian Army assured the people of Nagaland that the inquiry into the incident is progressing in an expeditious manner while they continue to cooperate with the SIT probe ordered by the state government.

“The inquiry ordered by Army is progressing expeditiously and all efforts are being made to conclude it at the earliest. We have taken out notices for people to come forward and assist us in the inquiry,” reads the official statement.

SATIRE DRIVEN, NON-MELODRAMATIC, FOCUSED, AND METICULOUSLY SCRIPTED; THIS MOVIE IS A WINNER THROUGH AND THROUGH!

How can one dislike a film that entertains throughout? In english, this movie title means ‘The engagement is on monday’.  There is no surprise in the plot line; all of it is revealed in the title.  The story is about the making of an engagement and the joys and troubles involved.  Senna Hegde pulls off a regular story with exceptional craft. The highlight of the film is its climax.  The climax offers no pomp and show, no tearful departures, no melodramatic breakdowns, no revolutions, no rebellions, no glamour, not even the promised engagement.This film is a must watch not because it is extraordinary, but because it is very ordinary, and the brilliance is entirely in the balance the filmmaker maintained throughout.
