As incidents of vandalism and arson are being reported from different parts of the capital city of Shillong, the Meghalaya government has decided to extend the curfew till 5 am on August 18.

The ban on internet services has also been extended for 24 more hours.

The four districts in Meghalaya, where the mobile internet services were suspended by the government are East Khasi Hills, West Khasi Hills, South West Khasi Hills and Ri-Bhoi district.

While sharing the helpline numbers on his Twitter handle, Special DGP of Assam, GP Singh wrote: “Helpline numbers released by @MeghalayaPolice for the people stranded in Shillong, Meghalaya.”

The curfew was imposed in Shillong in the East Khasi Hills district following a massive surge in violent protests in Shillong against the killing of former HNLC leader Chesterfield Thangkhiew.

On Monday, the Meghalaya Cabinet decided to initiate a judicial inquiry into the ‘killing’ of former HNLC leader Cheristerfield Thangkhiew.

The Meghalaya Cabinet also decided to constitute a peace committee which will be headed by deputy chief minister Prestone Tynsong.
