SHILLONG, July 7: Director General of Police, Idashisha Nongrang on Sunday said police is yet to make any breakthrough into the gruesome murder of four persons at Umpleng village in East Jaintia Hills on Saturday.
She said police were making all efforts to solve the multiple-murder case.
She informed that a third body has been identified as that of Rajesh Rai (26) of Koshi Anchal, Nepal.
Three of the four bodies (two of whom were identified on Saturday) were handed over to the relatives after post-mortem examination.
Police have constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to solve the case involving the recovery of four mutilated bodies lying with their hands tied with rope and multiple cut injuries on their bodies.
Meanwhile, BJP’s South Shillong MLA, Sanbor Shullai on Sunday expressed concern over the quadruple murder at Umpleng, which according to him highlights the alarming state of the law and order in the region.
He urged the state government to take immediate action and ensure that the rule of law prevails, adding that no one is above the law.
Shullai emphasised that violence is never an acceptable solution and encouraged stakeholders to resort to peaceful means, allowing the justice system to function effectively.
According to him, in a democratic setup, everyone has the right to raise their voice, but no one has the license to engage in violence or murder.
He appreciated the efforts of NGOs in addressing social issues like drug abuse and said that he supports non-violent approaches to solving problems.
