In addition, Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma said lot of initiatives have been taken since the incident and “you will see the result of that very soon.”
Talking to reporters on Friday, Sangma said, “Yes, there are concerns as I said these are HNLC overground workers and action has been taken on that and will be taken. Further, we will continue to neutralize anybody who tries to disturb the law and order in the state.”
The two arrested by the East Jaintia Hills police have been identified as Nangpynphriang Rymbai (46) from Tongseng village and Mani Phawa (43) from Wapung Skur village.
