Shillong: Curfew continued in parts of Meghalaya's capital for the second day after night-long violence where a mob burnt a shop, a house and damaged at least five vehicles besides injuring a senior police officer.

Night curfew was imposed in the city from 10 pm till 5 am to maintain peace. Mobile internet and SMS services have been indefinitely suspended in Shillong to avoid the spread of rumours.

Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma, who chaired a high-level meeting on Friday, has appealed for calm.

On Thursday night, a violent clash broke out between the police and a mob after a bus conductor was allegedly assaulted by a group of people from the Them Iew Mawlong area.

This lead to the government imposing a curfew in areas under Lumdiengjri police station and Cantonment Beat House from 4 am on Friday.

However, agitators violated the curfew and continued to clash with police and indulged in stone pelting.

The police fired teargas shells and lathi-charged the crowd after the personnel were attacked with stones between Mawkhar and Motphran.

“Superintendent of Police (City) Stephan Rynjah sustained injuries after he was hit by a rod and has been admitted to the Shillong Civil Hospital,” a senior police officer said.

At least 10 people have been injured and at least eight arrested, triggering demands that the government take action against alleged illegal settlers in the area.

Eight persons have been arrested in connection with the violence. The Army conducted a flag march in affected areas on Friday night after being asked to step in.
