The next two working days (Monday and Tuesday) will be observed as total lockdown in Shillong City agglomeration. Meghalaya CM Comrad Sangma has taken this decision as a measure to curb the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Meghalaya government on Tuesday lifted the ban on mobile internet services in two Jaintia Hills districts after improvement in the situation, officials said.
The curfew will be imposed in Shillong and its adjoining areas on the night of March 3 amid clashes between tribals and non-tribals over CAA. The District Magistrate, East Khasi Hills district has under Section 144 CrPC promulgated curfew in Shillong agglomeration and its adjoining areas with effect from 9:00 pm today till 6:00 am tomorrow.
The night curfew imposed in the Meghalaya capital after violent clashes was lifted at 8 am on Sunday, barring in areas under the jurisdiction of Lumdiengjri and Sadar police stations and Cantonment Beat House, where indefinite curfew continued to remain in effect, officials said.
The curfew imposed in parts of Shillong following violent protests was relaxed on Friday for 12 hours, beginning 10 am, with no untoward incident being reported from the areas.
