Oting case

Thirteen residents of Oting village, Nagaland, died last year in what has been described as a botched military operation. The issue now is whether the Indian military will prosecute the 30 involved personnel or permit criminal proceedings to move forward in the civilian courts. The Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act places that decision in the hands of the military. The Times of India has coverage here and here.
