NEW DELHI: A delegation of seven Trinamool Congress MPs met home minister Amit Shah on Wednesday, demanding financial compensation for families of the victims of the Nagaland killings and the repeal of the AFSPA (Armed Forces Special Powers Act).

Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio and his counterpart from neighbouring Meghalaya Conrad Sangma have demanded the repeal of AFSPA, following the killing of 14 civilians in Nagaland when security personnel opened fire on them last week.

TMC Rajya Sabha MP Sukhendu Sekhar Roy said, “we met the home minister and asked for adequate compensation for the families of the deceased and also asked for clarity on the stand that the government has taken on the demand arising from various quarters on the repeal or withdrawal of AFPSA,” after the meeting with Shah.

Another party MP, Kalyan Banerjee said, the home minister informed the delegation that “he (Shah) has already given his sanction to proceed against the officers involved in the incident (of firing),” while addressing the media after the meeting.

Apart from Roy and Banerjee, Saugata Roy, Mahua Moitra, Sushmita Deb, Nadimul Haque, Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar were among those who met the home minister.
