According to reports, the situation is tense after two persons were killed in East Khasi Hills district.

Two persons were reportedly beaten to death by miscreants at Ichamati under Shella Police Station in East Khasi Hills district on Wednesday evening.

The incident took place after the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) rally organized by the Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) along with other NGOs in Ichamati, police sources said.

Some criminal elements may have taken advantage of the situation and killed the two persons, who belonged to non-indigenous communities, they said.

East Khasi Hills Deputy Commissioner SC Sadhu confirmed the death of two persons and added that details are awaited.

Sources say the situation is tense and reinforcements are being sent.

All Superintendents of Police are directed to be alert and intensify foot and mobile patrols in their respective jurisdictions.

They have also been asked to organize peace meetings tomorrow.

District Police Chief Rituraj Ravi said the two dead bodies of L Esan Sing and L Sujit Dutta were found in Ichamati and Dalda respectively.

“Investigation and autopsy still need to be done. Teams from the local PS and additional teams from Shillong are on site. Further details need to be shared,” he said.
