Rebel outfit threatens to launch ‘Operation Kyllang’ to punish rapists in State
FROM A REPORTER
SHILLONG, March 14: In wake of the continued rate of crimes committed against women and children in the state, the banned militant outfit Hynniewtrep tiol Liberation Council (HNLC) on Tuesday announced its decision to restart ‘Operation Kyllang’ to punish rapists in the state.
The outfit in a statement released here today, has also criticised the tate government for its failure to tackle the alarming rate of crime committed against the female populace in the state.
The HNCL in the statement said that it is in the verge of reviving its operation Kyllang to punish rapists even as it stated that this will not be possible without the people’s cooperation.
“We will not spare rapist who target young women and children and we will take stringent action against such perpetrators,” Sainkupar Nongtraw, publicity secretary of the HNCL said.
Stating that the scerio of women’s safety in the State is deteriorating day by day, Nongtraw said, “The police is quite active when it comes to hunting down and arresting militants however when it comes to monitor drug mafias and rapists, they are blind to it.”
The HNLC also criticized the Chief Minister Mukul Sangma’s speech on crime against women during the assembly by stating that the Chief Minister has failed to sack the Home Minister whose guest house was used for raping a teege girl.
On the refusal of Home Minister HDR Lyngdoh to relinquish his portfolio despite constant demand from various pressure groups, Nongtraw said, “He (Home Minister) should have resigned to allow a fair probe into the matter.”
