Kohima, Jan 28 (PTI) Nagaland Chief Secretary Temjen

Toy died on Thursday evening at his residence in Kohima after

a brief illness, family sources said.

He was 57 and survived by wife and four children.

Toy, a 1989-batch IAS officer, took charge as the

chief secretary of Nagaland in March 2018.

He was diagnosed with a liver problem in mid-2020 and

was under constant medication. He was also flown to the US for

medical treatment but returned without much improvement,

family sources said.

Governor RN Ravi, Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio, Deputy

Chief Minister Y Patton and Leader of Opposition TR Zeliang

condoled the demise.

The IAS Association of Nagaland and other tribal

organisations also expressed their grief.

In his tribute, the governor said that Nagaland has

lost an able administrator and one of the finest human beings.

"Extremely sad and shocked to know that Temjen is no

more with us. May his soul rest in peace and may God give

strength to the family to bear with this devastating tragedy,"

the official handle of Raj Bhavan tweeted.

The chief minister said that his demise is a huge loss

for the Government of Nagaland and for the Nagas as a whole.

"I am extremely saddened at the passing away of Temjen

Toy, Chief Secretary of Nagaland. He was a humble, upright and

dedicated government servant," Rio tweeted. PTI CORR
