“Explanation will be sought from each and every officer and personnel of the Tactical Team-I. Once they submit their explanation we will take necessary action,” Dr Bishnoi said while addressing a press conference on Friday.

The state government has already sought explanation from the police personnel as per the action taken report based on the report of the one-man commission of Inquiry headed by Justice T Vaiphei tabled in the Assembly on September 9.

According to the report, the operation was well planned but poorly executed since the team was to capture Thangkhiew alive.
