Guwahati/UNI: Amid ongoing curfew in several parts of Meghalaya, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Monday requested his counterpart Conrad Sangma to take measures for the safety of people from Assam stranded in the hill state.

On a plea of stranded persons from Assam seeking help on Twitter, Sarma tagged Sangma and said, “For your information and necessary action.”

Assam Police have also alarmed people from the state against any travel to Shillong till curfew continues amid the deteriorating law and order situation in Meghalaya.

“Curfew has been imposed in Shillong due to law and order issues. People from Assam are advised not to travel to Shillong till curfew continues,” special DGP, Assam Police, G.P Singh tweeted after the East Khasi Hills district magistrate had clamped curfew from 8 pm on Sunday.

The Meghalaya government had imposed curfew following violence and unrest in the state capital after a former HNLC leader was killed in a ‘police encounter’ in Shillong.

The Meghalaya capital also saw sporadic violence on Sunday with protesters pelting stones.

A police vehicle was also set on fire by miscreants.

The state government also suspended mobile internet services for 48 hours from Sunday evening in four districts.
