HNYF offers assistance to victims of HNLC demand notes

Must read

Shillong, July 31: In response to the recent issuance of demand notes in the name of the proscribed Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC), the Hynniewtrep National Youth Front (HNYF) has stepped forward to support those affected. The HNYF President of East Khasi Hills District, Bless Dkhar, urged individuals who have received such demand notes to approach the HNYF for assistance rather than resorting to media disclosures without providing necessary details for verification.

The HNYF’s statement came to light after a small-time businesswoman shared her harrowing experience through an email to a local newspaper. The woman revealed that she had been served with a demand note amounting to Rs 20 lakh by a person claiming to be the HNLC area collector for East Khasi Hills and Ri Bhoi regions, identified as Synshar Khymdei.


Expressing concern over the misuse of HNLC’s name, Dkhar noted that the outfit had recently clarified that they were not involved in issuing extortion notes. He suspected the involvement of “black sheep” attempting to disrupt the ongoing peace process between the Centre, the State, and the HNLC. Nevertheless, he assured that the HNYF was fully committed to addressing the matter seriously.

The HNYF President issued a stern warning to Synshar Khymdei and pledged to uncover his identity. Moreover, the HNYF urged victims to come forward and seek face-to-face assistance, as the organization is prepared to provide all possible help. At the same time, Dkhar cautioned against any further misuse of HNLC’s name, clarifying that the HNYF would not assume responsibility for any consequences that may befall such individuals.

In an effort to bring the culprits to justice, Dkhar called on victims of extortion to lodge formal complaints with the police.
