The Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC), an outlawed militant outfit in Meghalaya have urged the kidnappers for an immediate release of a top Meghalaya official and his driver. Five armed rebels from the Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA) abducted R. Syngkon, the district transport officer of East Garo Hills district, and his driver from his official residence in Williamnagar on September 30. “We do not wish to see such incidents which could create enmity between the Garos and the Hynniewtrep people,” HNLC Spokesman Sainkupar Nongtraw, said in an e-mailed statement. The HNLC, a tribal Khasi militant outfit, which runs hit-and-run operations from its hideout in Bangladesh, has been demanding a sovereign Khasi homeland in eastern Meghalaya while the GNLA is fighting for a sovereign Garoland for tribal Garo in the western Meghalaya “As fellow tribals living in the same state, individuals, social organisations and even armed militant groups should never resort to any step which could jeopardise the society and the future of the people,” Nongtraw said.
