With protest and agitations gaining momentum in Meghalaya, Opposition Congress Chief Whip and Mawlai MLA PT Sawkmie cautioned the State government to take a call on the suspension of the top cops for normalcy to return in the state.

The Opposition leader also added that the killing of Thangkhiew will be a top issue in the upcoming Assembly session and it will better for the government if the CM suspends the top police officials before the Assembly session.
