Extension of AFSPA in Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland

The recent news revolves around the extension of the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act (AFSPA) in parts of Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland by the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs for another six months, effective from April 1, 2024. This decision was based on a review of the law and order situation in these regions. AFSPA grants the military significant powers, including arresting without a warrant and searching premises without a warrant, under the designation of “disturbed areas.” This extension specifically applies to Changlang, Tirap, and Longding districts in Arunachal Pradesh and certain areas within Namsai district, with detailed specifics on Nagaland districts not provided in the source .
