SHILLONG: A day after the police shot three cadres of ANVC-B for their involve-ment in extortion, the militant outfit on Sunday denied the police claim that they were extorting money.
In a statement, ANVC-B leader Rimpu Marak said that foul play has begun as the election is over.
Marak stated that the outfit had signed the draft agreement to bring peace to the people, but the moment elected politicians have taken over, the killings have started again.
“My cadres were not extorting but were mobilizing the villagers about the draft agreement and they were shot by suspected unknown attackers even though police have claimed the attack,” the statement added.
Claiming ‘foul play’ in the incident, the ANVC-B leader stated that the act will create differences among the cadres as the slain cadres were teenagers.
“We have come overground for peace and not to be hunted down,” the statement added.
