    Meghalaya Violence: Death Toll Rises To 3; DGP Appeals To Unite Against Rumours

    Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma appealed to the citizens of the State to refrain from any kind of violence and ensure that peace is maintained

    The death toll in Meghalaya climbed to three on March 1st, 2020 after clashes erupted between Khasi Students Union (KSU) members and non-tribals during a rally on the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and Inner Line Permit (ILP) in East Khasi Hills district of Meghalaya.

    The third victim was identified as Uphas Uddin, who hailed from Assam. Uddin was attacked by unidentified three miscreants at Pyrkan village in Shillong on March 1st, 2020. The other two deceased were identified as Rupchand Dewan and Lurshai Hynniewta.

    As per a special bulletin issued by Meghalaya Police, at 2.45 am on March 1st, 2020, Uddin was attacked by three unknown miscreants at his house at Pyrkan village. He was declared dead on arrival at a local hospital.

    Tension gripped Meghalaya after a meeting opposing the CAA and seeking implementation of the ILP regime in the state organised by KSU turned violent on February 28th, 2020 after it was attacked by non-tribals. Several persons were also injured in the clashes that took place on March 28th, 2020.

    On the other hand, as many as ten non-tribal people were stabbed by unidentified miscreants at Bara Bazaar in Shillong on February 29th, 2020. Dewan, a migrant labourer from Assam, died on the way to the hospital after being stabbed.

    Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma appealed to the citizens of the State to refrain from any kind of violence and ensure that peace is maintained. 

    A magisterial probe has been ordered into the incident in which one Lurshai Hynniewta succumbed to the major injuries he suffered at Ichamati under Sohra Division.

    He further informed the government has taken all measures to maintain law and order with the deployment of additional forces including the increase of manpower in Sohra Subdivision to monitor and contain the situation. 

    So far eight people have been arrested in the connection with the clashes and a magisterial inquiry has been instituted to further probe the incident.

    After a four-hour relaxation, curfew was re-imposed on February 29th, 2020 in areas in Shillong. Internet services were also suspended in six of the eleven districts of Meghalaya – East Jaintia Hills, West Jaintia Hills, East Khasi Hills, Ri Bhoi, West Khasi Hills and South West Khasi Hills.

    Amidst clashes, Meghalaya DGP R Chandranathan appealed for peace saying people should refrain from any kind of violent activities. Meghalaya Police also asked the citizens have been asked to maintain restraint and not fall prey to unverified information.  

    “All peace loving people from all spheres of life, are requested to kindly unite in fighting the menace of propagating and spreading of rumors & hate mongering,” tweeted Meghalaya Police.
