Shillong, June 2: The Congress Bhavan at Nongpoh, Ri Bhoi yesterday came under attack when miscreants attempted to burn it down.

The incident took place at around 1.30 am on Thursday, when miscreants set fire to the Bhavan of the ruling Congress party, police said.

They said that as a result, the main door of the building was partially burnt.

Following the recent violent protest over the ongoing construction of railway line in Ronghona in Ri Bhoi, the three districts including East Khasi Hills and West Khasi Hills have witnessed series of petrol bomb attacks targeting installments of importance.

Earlier on wednesday night, miscreants also hurled a petrol bomb at a police requisition bus (ML-05P-8518) at Lailad, Nongmynsong, Shillong. As a result, the front portion of the bus was partially damaged.

Petrol bomb was again thrown in front of a shop at Lower Jail Road, Shillong.
