SHILLONG: Unidentified miscreants fired around 20 rounds from AK 47 rifles at the Lumdiengjri police station at around 10.20 pm on Monday.
Miscreants, who fired from near the ATM opposite to the police station, disappeared from the scene after committing the crime.
No one was injured. But the firing left some bullet marks on the walls of the police station.
A police personnel’s son had a close shave as a bullet pierced through a staff quarter adjacent to the police station. East Khasi Hills Superintendent of Police (SP) AR Mawthoh, meanwhile, termed the incident as “a blatant attempt to create panic and fear psychosis in the minds of the people.” “It is too premature to say anything until the police get a definite clue,” Mawthoh said. When asked about involvement of any militant group, the SP said, “At present nothing can be ruled out.” It could be a handy work of a ‘bunch of criminals’, he added.
