Three separate cases have been registered at the Ampati PS over the incident on April 18 following which an investigation was begun.

Following leads in the case, SWGH police made at least two arrests yesterday and another two this morning in a joint operation by police teams of Meghalaya and Assam.

“We have arrested four persons in the case so far. We arrested 2 suspects yesterday from Hatsingimari yesterday by the Assam police. We arrested another from Rajabala while he was on a night-bus en route to Guwahati. The fourth suspect has been arrested from Teporpara near the Assam – Meghalaya border. We are on the lookout for the others involved in the case and will not spare any,” informed SWGH district police chief, Vikas Yadav.

All 4 arrested persons have been sent to 5 day police custody.  The police hope, more details will emerge in the coming days.
