Meghalaya Home Minister H.D.R Lyngdoh Friday said that the government will investigate into the nexus between the Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA) rebels and police personnel. “It could be only a suspicion (nexus between GNLA rebels and police personnel), but we will conduct an investigation to established these linkages,” Lyngdoh told journalists. Lyngdoh’s statement is significant after top official from the union ministry of home affairs accused to two police inspectors, four sub-inspectors and a number of police constables of the Meghalaya police of maintaining links with the GNLA. The GNLA, which is fighting for a ‘sovereign Garoland’ in the western areas of Meghalaya, is headed by Champion R. Sangma, a rogue policeman. In fact, the Meghalaya Police has stepped up internal vigilance to prevent leakage of information to rebel groups.
