Guwahati: Amid the detection of the IED bomb at the National People’s Party (NPP) office on Monday, the banned militant outfit Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC) has openly threatened to eliminate the ministers of the state (Government of Meghalaya) by killing them ahead of state elections.
In an email, the banned militant outfit Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council said, “We have received information from reliable sources regarding the death of Chesterfield Thangkhiew alias Bah Che, was a complete political conspiracy by some ministers of the state of Meghalaya and where these ministers will hide themselves before the upcoming elections, we will hunt them, chase them and intimidate them, hence we will shoot and kill them without any mercy.”
They also claimed that responsibility for planted IED at Lachumier NPP’s office on Monday afternoon.
“At the same time the council has taken an extreme step after the government’s power through the police who arrested some innocent people without any proper evidence or proof, simply it was trying to showcase its strength by allegedly accusing Chesterfield Thangkhiew alias Bah Che that he was involved in extortion and IED bomb blast. The allegation against Bah Che was just the miscalculation and disinformation,” the email reads.
The HNLC also warned the party workers of NPP and demanded their immediate resignation from the party and asked them to refrain from joining the party within a month, failing to do so, the Council threatened to take strong measures against the higher-up’s office bearers of the NPP in Khasi as well as in Jaintia hills.
“Those who go against this warning will need not ask any questions or seek any answers from the HNLC. The HNLC has asked the youth of the state to send the names of the President, general secretary of the different units to the council through this email [email protected] or you can also inbox the names in my FB ac @sainkupar nongtraw,” the email reads further.
Meanwhile, the Meghalaya police in a press statement has informed that a case under relevant provisions of law is being registered at Laitumkhrah police station against the members of the proscribed outfit HNLC who have made claims through social media about planting the explosive substances in front of NPP office.
