“Clear violation of human rights”: Meghalaya CM seeks NHRC intervention over Mukroh firing

New Delhi: Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Friday sought National Human Rights Commission’s (NHRC) support for necessary action over the loss of lives in firing by Assam officers at the inter-state border.

Sangma and deputy chief minister Prestone Tynsong called on NHRC chairperson justice Arun Kumar Mishra and its other members in New Delhi.

“Gave a detailed account of the firing incident that claimed 6 lives at Mukroh to Hon’ble Justice Arun Kumar Mishra Ji, Chairperson, National Human Rights Commission and other members of the NHRC,” Meghalaya CM tweeted.

“Informed the Hon’ble Chairperson (NHRC) and the members that the Mukroh incident was a clear violation of human rights,” he said.

“Apprised them about the actions that have been taken like the Central Agency enquiry into the matter.”

“Sought their support for necessary action from their end,” he said, stressing on the need for proper sensitisation of forces deputed in sensitive areas so that such incidents do not happen.

“Also stressed on the need for proper sensitisation of forces deputed in sensitive border areas so that such incidents where precious lives are lost do not reoccur in any part of the country,” he said.

Six people, including an Assam forest guard, were killed in firing along the inter-state border on Tuesday after a truck transporting illegally-felled timber was intercepted by forest personnel of Assam.
