CEM for beefing up security

KHADC office vandalism: No police breakthrough yet

SHILLONG: Thursday’s incident at the KHADC office has triggered a sense of insecurity among the MDCs as well as the staff with the Chief Executive Member (CEM) PN Syiem deciding to write to the state government for beefing up security on the Council premises.
Indicating this, Syiem on Friday said that he would write to the State Government in this regard “Otherwise such things will keep on happening.”
The office of the KHADC witnessed chaos and drama on Thursday with some members of KSU storming the building to “meet” Syiem to discuss the issue of granting of NOC for the Nongstoin-Wahkaji road project which the Union is opposing.
Amid protests outside the KHADC building by members of KSU, things took an ugly turn when “unidentified miscreants” vandalized the CEM’s office and even manhandled the staff and   allegedly pulled the hair of a female employee. Police is yet to arrest those involved in the incident. East Khasi Hills district police chief  M Kharkrang  on Thursday said that action would be taken against the miscreants who  ransacked the office.
He said that police is trying to find out those involved in the ransacking of the office.
