Kohima calmed down late on Thursday night after the Army was called in. Five columns, or 375 soldiers, were deployed across the city, which had witnessed arson and vandalism since afternoon as the protests escalated against Nagaland Chief Minister's refusal to postpone the municipal elections, in which seats were reserved for women. Sources said it has been decided that the election will be declared null and void and two senior police officers of Dimapur will be transferred so an impartial inquiry can be held into the firing incident. An order, however, is yet to be issued.
