The Assistant Inspector-General of Police (A), GK Langrai said that PD Sangma, the District Magistrate along with the Sub-Divisional Police Officer, (Mawshynrut), I Kharkhongor proceeded to Langpih to assess the situation.
Langrai said, "Police Personnel of Langpih AD Camp and Magistrate on duty at Langpih Check Gate held up 6 persons while they were roaming around in Langpih market, as they were believed to be part of the Motorcycle group, and immediately they were directed to return back to Assam, as interstate movement is currently prohibited." He further informed that all the bikers had left Mawsikar and Langpih area under Assam Police escort.
"As Langpih and Mawsikar villages are disputed areas, the matter is, therefore, being closely monitored by the Superintendent of Police, West Khasi Hills, who is co-ordinating the same with Superintendent of Police, Kamrup District, Assam," the AIGP said.
