SHILLONG: Suspected Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA) militants on Monday shot dead a person — Hawart G Momin — at Rongcheck Akong, about 12 kilometers from Rongjeng Police station, accusing him to be a police ‘informer’.
Police recovered five empty cases of INSAS and 7.65 pistol from the spot.
It is learnt that five GNLA cadres, who came in civil dress, called out Momin and shot him dead in front of his house. This is the second such incident in less than a week in the district.
On August 9 suspected GNLA rebels shot dead a village elder, Simon Ch Marakat.
