CM condemns triple murders in East Garo Hills

Shillong, Apr 23: Chief Minister Conrad Sangma has condemned the triple murders in East Garo Hills bordering Assam and urged the people not to take law into their hands.

“My dear Citizens of Assam and Meghalaya, I am saddened to learn about the tragic incident that occurred in the Rongmil area of East Garo Hills, Meghalaya, on April 17, 2024. The discovery of three charred bodies, residents of Assam, buried amidst the ashes of their burnt vehicle, is a stark reminder of the brutality that can shake our communities”, the chief minister said.


“First and foremost, I vehemently condemn this heinous act of violence. Such actions have no place in our society and stand as a grave violation of our shared humanity. In this time of sorrow and uncertainty, it is imperative that we come together as compassionate individuals and communities to offer support and solace to those affected by this senseless tragedy”, the CM said in a statement.

He also appealed to the residents- both in Assam and Meghalaya-to refrain from resorting to vigilante justice or any form of retaliation. “Let us not allow the seeds of discord and animosity to take root in our hearts. I urge you to resist the temptations of those who seek to exploit this tragedy for their own nefarious agendas, whether through communal incitement or spreading of misinformation”, he said.

The authorities in Meghalaya have already taken swift action by initiating a thorough investigation into the matter. Rest assured; every effort is being made to bring the perpetrators of this crime to justice. However, it is equally crucial that we uphold the principles of peace, justice, and rule of law as pillars of our society, the chief minister said.

“To the affected families, I extend my deepest condolences and assure you that you are not alone in your grief. We stand in solidarity with you, offering our support and assistance during this trying time. May peace and tranquillity prevail”, he added.
