Mawlai group surrenders knives at secretariat gate

Shiillong,Sept 10: The Voice of Mawlai People has deposited knives at the gate of Meghalaya Secretariat on Friday in the presence of security personnel.

The symbolic protest was to mount pressure on the state government for the suspension of the police personnel involved in the  killing of the former general secretary of Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC) Cherishtarfield Thangkhiew.

All the knives collected during the recent knife surrender rally in Mawlai were deposited in a surprise move intended to ridicule the police version that the former HNLC leader challenged the police with a knife resulting in the firing on August 13.

The leaders of Mawlai group displayed placards and shouted  slogans, “MDA government suspend immediately the three top cops, Director General of Police, SP, East Jaintia Hills and DSP Traffic Shillong.”
