Meghalaya: Internet banned, total curfew announced following violence, protests

After a ban on internet services for 48 hours in four districts of Meghalaya, a total curfew has been imposed starting 8 pm on Sunday. The decision was taken in response to the unrest in the state over the encounter of ex-HNLC militant HNLC Cherishterfield Thangkhiew.

It has been reported that there have been several incidents of stone-pelting, arson, theft, and a serious disruption of law and order in parts of Shillong on Independence day.

The government order states that the curfew has been imposed to stop the further spread of violence and breach of peace in other parts of the state and control further damage to property and loss of life.

The curfew has been imposed in the whole of Municipal Area, the Cantonment Area, all areas under Mawlai and Mawpat blocks, including Census towns, areas Under Mylliem Block from Umshyrpi Bridge up to 7th Mile, Upper Shillong, Madanrting, Mawblei, Laitkor, Nongkseh, Umlyngka, Lawsohtun, Mawdiangdiang, Diengiong and Siejiong.

During the period of curfew, any public movement is prohibited. Offices, shops, establishments and all educational institutions will remain closed and no gatherings, public meetings or rallies will be allowed. Only exemptions for medical emergencies, COVID-19 and hospital duty will be applicable.

In view of the current situation in the state and the urgency of the matter, the order will remain in force till 05:00 am of August 17, 2021, or until further orders from the government.
