SHILLONG: At least 10 Khasi Students Union (KSU) activists today were summoned by the state police in connection with the recent petrol bomb attack on the BJP office.
The activists appeared before Investigation Officer (IO) of the case SI MN Sangma for questioning at the Sadar Police Station. They were also accompanied by KSU leaders and other members.
Expressing concern on the matter, KSU general secretary Donald V Thabah said the activists have been called for questioning without any evidences.
“We strongly oppose such baseless action against our activists as this is nothing but harassment,” he said.
Thabah said this is not the first time that the members were asked to appear before the police with regards to similar arson cases taken place in past. According to him, most of the persons arrested in such cases are not KSU members.
Asked, he said that the members were told that since the BJP is in the ruling, the petrol bomb attack on its office has been taken as a high profile case.
