East Khasi Hills Deputy Commissioner Matsiewdor War Nongbri, after several hours of relaxation, reimposed the curfew from 9 p.m. in Shillong and its adjoining areas. The curfew would continue till 5 a.m. on Friday.
According to the police, the fresh incident of stabbing has brought further fear among the people, especially the non-tribals, as it occured after the normalcy is limping back to the Shillong city and adjoining areas. Police are yet to identify the attackers, who stabbed 21-year-old Sanidul Islam. The injured was shifted to the hospital.
The security forces continue to maintain a strict vigil for the past one week in different areas of the hill state following clashes over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the Inner Line Permit (ILP).
Following a massive agitations by various local groups and political parties, the Meghalaya Assembly on December 19 last year had unanimously adopted a resolution requesting the Centre to promulgate the ILP in the remaining areas of the state to keep the entire state out of the purview of the CAA, but the Union Home Ministry is yet to issue the statutory notification in this regard.
