Meghalaya Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong on Sunday said the state government is trying to get to the kingpin of the Ichamati incident. Stating that the police are conducting investigation and the case has not yet been closed, Tynsong said that the government has entrusted the police with the responsibility and are awaiting detailed investigation.

He asserted that the government will not allow such elements to create a law and order situation and further assured that the perpetrators of the crime would be taken to task.

Earlier, KSU president Lambokstar Marngar expressed dissatisfaction over the steps taken by the authorities in dealing with those involved in the incident. Claiming that it was a pre-planned attack, KSU is not satisfied over the manner in which the case is being handled.

It may be mentioned that a group of KSU members had come under attack on February 28 last year at the end of a meeting which was organised to press for Inner Line Permit and oppose the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
