|NGO accuses Meghalaya police|
SHILLONG, Dec 3 – The Civil Society Women’s Organisation (CSWO) today claimed there was enough evidence against an Additional Superintendent of Police and a Sub Inspector and SWAT personnel of their involvement in the “extra-judicial killing” of two youths in 2012.
Filing an FIR, CSWO president Agnes Kharshiing said in the report that the ASP of West Garo Hills district, Bruno A Sangma, who was the then SDPO of Dadenggre, Sub Inspector Oksnath P Marak and some SWAT personnel have killed two youths – Waistone R Marak of Dabongre and Rocky A Sangma of Dimakgre, in cold blood on August 14, 2012, at Rari, North Garo Hills district.
The police team led by the then SDPO Sangma shot the two youths where they sustained five to seven bullet wounds. Stating the police should have taken the youth for treatment after they were shot, Kharshiing claimed the police pumped in more shots which led to their death.
“This is an ‘extra-judicial killing’ where police have no right whatsoever to kill in coldblood and should have given the slain youth medical treatment, and a chance to stand trial, to prove their innocence as no one is guilty until proven, especially when in this case they were mere suspects, and had no criminal record,” Kharshiing stated.
