The Dorbar Shnong of Mawsikar, near Langpih, recently submitted a letter to the Deputy Commissioner of West Khasi Hills district, T Lyngwa, demanding the removal of the Assam Police camp in the village.

Three girls from a village near Langpih, on February 7, alleged that they were ‘manhandled’ by some Assam Police personnel while on their way to church.

While addressing reporters, the Sordar (headman) of Mawsikar, N Nongbri, stated that the Assam police camp at Mawsikar is a curse to the villagers.

“The incident (that) happened on February 7 was not the first. Assam Police usually misbehave with (the) women and children in our village,” Nongbri said.

Nongbri stated that the village dorbar convened a meeting on February 8 concerning the matter and unanimously agreed that they should remove the Assam Police camp.

Meanwhile, West Khasi Hills police registered a case in connection with the FIR lodged by the three girls against three Assam Police personnel.

West Khasi Hills Superintendent of Police H.G Lyngdoh said that Assam Police authorities have taken due note of the incident and instituted an enquiry.
