This week on NL Hafta, Abhinandan Sekhri, Raman Kirpal and Anand Vardhan are joined by Karma Paljor, editor in chief of EastMojo, and Patricia Mukhim, editor of Shillong Times.

The discussion begins with the killing of 14 civilians in Nagaland by security forces. Patricia says, “Until you have the army along with AFSPA, there will always be an excuse for them to kill innocents, especially when the region is declared ‘disturbed’.” The panel also compares Kashmir and Nagaland, and discusses the multiple issues with AFSPA.

Moving on to the chopper crash in Tamil Nadu that killed Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat and 12 others, the panel agrees that a full investigation will reveal the reasons behind the crash. They also talk about the farmer protests drawing to a close, and what to expect in the future.

This and a lot more only on NL Hafta.
