Meghalaya Police Identify Suspects in Ichamati Killing Case


Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma has pledged to take action against the perpetrators responsible for the killing of two non-tribals in Ichamati, East Khasi Hills district.

The incident occurred after a protest rally against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) organized by the Khasi Students’ Union, resulting in the deaths of two individuals at Ichamati in Meghalaya’s East Khasi Hills district.

Chief Minister Sangma revealed that Meghalaya police have identified several suspects in connection with the killings and assured that law enforcement agencies are actively pursuing them.

“We will follow the law and ensure that justice is served,” Sangma stated emphatically, emphasizing the government’s commitment to upholding the rule of law.

The killings have exacerbated tensions in Ichamati, with residents apprehensive about potential reprisals, highlighting the fragile situation in the area.

Sangma’s remarks come amidst criticism for his initial silence on the matter. Despite his active presence on social media platforms, the Chief Minister had not publicly addressed the Ichamati killings until now.

According to the East Khasi Hills Police, no arrests have been made thus far in connection with the incident. The bodies of Esan Sing and Sujit Dutta, both non-tribals, were discovered in Ichamati and Dalda, situated under the Shella Assembly constituency along the India-Bangladesh border.

The Chief Minister’s assurance of swift action reflects the government’s determination to deliver justice and restore peace in the affected area.

Sangma reiterated the government’s commitment to thoroughly investigate the incident and bring the perpetrators to justice. He urged the public to remain patient and assured them that the authorities are leaving no stone unturned in their pursuit of truth and accountability.

In response to the tragedy, communities across Meghalaya have come together to condemn the violence and extend their support to the families of the victims. Leaders from various sectors have called for unity and solidarity in the face of such senseless acts.
