Shillong, June 14: The family of former HNLC leader Cherishstarfield Thangkhiew, who was shot dead by the police, has moved the High Court of Meghalaya for action against police personnel involved in the crime.
A petition was moved by Granary S Thangkhiew, the brother of Cherishstarfield.
The court on Wednesday heard TT Diengdoh, senior counsel assisted by R. Kharsyad, counsel who represented thr petitioner.
Government advocates S. Sahay and ER Chyne were present on behalf of all the respondents.
The grievance of the writ petitioner is that after the FIR wad filed on August 18, 2021 and a case registered at Mawlai police station and also an inquiry report dated 19.05.2022 submitted to the state by a One Man Enquiry Commission, the writ petitioner and the family are not aware of what has transpired thereafter.
Sahay submitted that certain steps have been taken in so far as the investigation and action against the erring personnel are concerned, and that he may be allowed to bring the status report and the other materials by way of an affidavit within a period of 4 weeks from June 14.
The matter will be heard again on July 13.
