Correspondent

Khliehriat, March 24: The Khliehriat Congress Block Committee staged a sit-in demonstration in front of the office of the Deputy Commissioner (DC) of East Jaintia Hills district here today.

Slamming the district administration for not making any headway in locating and punishing the people responsible for the murder of two schoolgirls in the district, the KCBC pointed out that crimes against women and children have been occurring from time to time in the district.

During the protest, the members of the KCBC also held placards with messages such as ‘Meghalaya is a land of righteousness and not Sodom and Gomorrah’, ‘Hang rapists’ ‘Immediately arrest criminals, jail them for life’.
