Meghalaya government Monday said that it would ask the centre to institute an independent inquiry into the police firing at Langpih where four Khasis were killed.
“We have decided to ask the centre set up an independent inquiry in a time bound manner by independent agencies such as a CBI into the firing incident,” Chief Minister Dr Mukul M Sangma told reporters. Sangma was chairing a marathon of meetings over the firing at Langpih with all-party leaders, NGOs, including a cabinet meeting.
Meanwhile, tension prevailed in the state after the firing with reports of arsons and attacks on Nepali settlers in the state. Loknath Bastula, a cattle herder succumbed to his injuries after unidentified men torched his house at Mawsawli village,

Subsequent backlash against its community in the entire Khasi and Jaintia Hills has made the Nepalese to cross over to Umlapher and Umwang of Karbi Anglong. Local people were apprehensive that the refugees might try to settle in those areas and give rise to social tension in the area.
The ASDC submitted a memorandum to the deputy commissioner to take necessary action to prevent further infiltration and also to identify the infiltrators. The ASDC said that the infiltrators could be sheltered in a relief camp on humanitarian ground and make possible arrangement with Meghalaya to take back the infiltrators.
