Neutrino neutral-current elastic interaction by atmospheric neutrinos is one of the main background in Supernova relic neutrino (SRN) search at Super-Kamiokande with Gadolinium. Understanding of gamma-ray production via neutron interaction on oxygen is important for the study of neutrino neutral-current elastic interactions. A measurement of gamma-rays production from such reactions was performed by using a 30 MeV quasi-mono energetic neutron beam in the Research Center for Nuclear Physics, Osaka University. In this proceedings the current status and future prospects of this mesurement are presented.
