It was decided at the meeting that more fire line cutting would be charted out for intensification of the operation by Thursday. It also discussed about increasing the number of sorties with the India Air Force (IAF) helicopters.

“As the fire incident location is far from the base camp, the meeting also discussed to increase stationed force by setting up more camps in the base camps to create accommodation for NDRF and others. The meeting further discussed to survey an alternative route to reach the fire incident sites for containment of the inferno,” the update read.

Top officials including SP Kohima, Manoj Kumar; DFO Kohima, Raj Kumar; ADC Kohima, Lithrongla Tongpi Rutsa; Deputy Commandant of NDRF and others attended the meeting.
