Shillong, Aug 30: In an effort to exert pressure on the state government to give in to their demands for justice to former-HNLC, general secretary Cherish S Thangkhiew, a conglomeration of several pressure groups from Malki locality on Monday gave the government a seven-day deadline to suspend the police officers.
The â€˜Sur Ehrngiew ki Nong Malkiâ€™ or the â€œVoice of Malkiâ€™, said that if the government fails to listen to their demand they will hold a rally in the locality.
Spokesperson of the forum Junestar Kharbuli said that the government has done the right thing by setting up a judicial inquiry to probe into the entire incident.
Kharbuli however said it is also high time the state government takes a call to suspend the police officers to allow a free and fair investigation in order for the truth to come out.
These pressure groups and social organisations under the umbrella of â€˜Sur Ehrngiew ki Nong Malkiâ€™ are KSU, FKJGP, HNYF, HYC and Seng Samla Malki.
