 SHILLONG: East Khasi Hills Police on Sunday issued notices under Section 41 of the CrPC to KSU members of Nongmynsong unit to report to the police station on Monday after it was established that they were involved in the recent arson-related cases in the area.

On Saturday night, police arrested one Donbor Wahlang, president of KSU Nongmynsong unit, and Starsing Nongsiej, member of the same unit, for their involvement in the recent arson cases in the area.

According to the police, the notices issued against the other KSU members of Nongmynsong unit who were not available on Saturday night, were based on the revelation made by the two arrested KSU members.
