HNLC against arrest of cadres

Shillong, June 14: The HNLC has said the arrest of  HNLC members was detrimental to the local people  of Block-2, who are allegedly subjected to extortion by militants from Assam.

In a statement issued on Friday, the HNLC general secretary-cum-publicity secretary Sainkupar Nongtrawo said that though the outfit appreciates talks offer to HNLC by Prestone, the militant group doesn’t like the way the deputy chief minister speaks.


“Instances of violence perpetrated by Assam police against Khasi community members, destruction of agricultural produce by the Assam forest department, and extortion by militants from Assam have been reported, prompting the HNLC to safeguard the well-being and possessions of those residing in this region. Regrettably, the arrest of our associates by the authorities in this zone constitutes a significant detriment to the local populace,” the HNLC said.
