SHILLONG, May 13: The Meghalaya Peoples Human Rights Council (MPHRC) has strongly denounced the heinous police brutality committed by A. Thabah, the Officer In-charge (OC) of Mairang Police Station along with two other policemen as allegedly claimed by the victim, Donboklang Lyngdoh Mawlong. In a statement today, while vehemently castigating the police brutality on the victim, Donboklang Lyngdoh Mawlong, the MPHRC said, “this police brutality committed by A. Thabah signifies how the errant men in uniform can traumatize common people in rural and far flung areas of Meghalaya.” “The Director General of Police, Rajiv Mehta, should ensure that the common people are not brutalized by his police force. The policemen responsible for thrashing Mawlong should be brought to justice,” said MPHRC secretary general Shemphang S. Rynjah. MPHRC demanded that the crime committed by the Officer in-charge must be investigated promptly and the accused officers must be brought to trial without delay. The victim should be provided with immediate compensation for the medical treatment in a specialized medical institution free of cost, and rehabilitated. The victim, his family, and witnesses should be protected till the completion of the trial.
