Shillong, Oct 7: A hardcore cadre of the proscribed Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC) today surrendered before Meghalaya police at Khliehriat in East Jaintia Hills district.
Informing this, Meghalaya Home Minister Lahkmen Rymbui said Emanuel Suchen joined the HNLC in 2002 and was arrested in 2008, where he was jailed for three years under MPDA and after that again went back to the outfit.
“However, better sense has prevailed, so today he surrendered to the police. I am happy that he has come forward to join the mainstream,” the Home Minister said.
On the other hand, Rymbui informed that preliminary interrogation has revealed that Suchen was involved in the IED blasts in Star Cement and Police Reserve at Khliehriat.
“So the interrogation is going on to know the full details,” he said.
The Home Minister however said that due process of law will be taken as deemed fit by the Police Department.
