The Oting Village Council has refused to accept ex-gratia provided by the state government to the kin of those deceased and injured in the Mon firing incident. The Village Council in a statement said that it had received an envelope containing an amount of Rs 18 lakh 30 thousand which was brought by Minister Paiwang Konyak and Deputy Commissioner of Mon district. The Village Council initially accepted the amount assuming it as a token of love and gift from Minister Paiwang Konyak.

However, after knowing the fact that it was an advance payment or installment of an ex-gratia from the state government for the victims’ family and injured persons, the Village Council decided not to accept it. The Village Council maintained that it will not accept any ex-gratia until those behind the Mon firing incident are brought to justice and AFSPA is repealed.
