At least two persons were injured in an improvised bomb blast by Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC), an outlawed organisation in a busy market of Shillong on Tuesday.
The 1kg remotely-timed improvised explosive device (IED), triggered by the outlawed Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC), went off at around 1:30 pm behind a busy market area in Laitumkhrah injuring a shopkeeper and a passer-by.
The Police have registered a case and investigation is currently on to nab those involved in carrying out the blast.
Meanwhile, Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Tuesday said those involved in the bomb attack.
“Those involved in the IED blast in Shillong will not be spared. Those who are a threat to peace will be punished," he said.
Last month the rebel outfit carried out an attack at a police reserve barracks in East Jaintia Hills district headquarters injuring a policeman and damaging buildings. Three persons were later arrested.
