The Nagaland government asked the telecom department to block SMS and MMS services across the state and it was done immediately. The restriction will continue till further instructions.
Although telephone and internet services continued, the services were erratic. The Nagaland government had suspended three top officials including the police superintendent, the deputy commissioner and jail superintendent of Dimapur for their failure to handle the situation and ordered a judicial probe into the incident. Meanwhile, a 12-hour bandh called by civil society organisations to protest against the brutal killing affected normal life in Assam's Barak Valley districts. Protestors blocked many roads in Barak Valley, leading to problems in vehicular movement. There was, however, no major untoward incident. Khan's body was on Sunday buried in his native village Bosla near Badarpur town in Karimganj district amid tight security. Nagaland authorities had handed over Khan's body to his family in Khatkhati area on the Assam-Nagaland border on Saturday. The body was later taken to his native village.
