The wee hours of April 23 turned to be a nightmare for some persons as miscreants burnt down three scooters at Rilbong area.
As per the residents of the area, two unknown boys in a bike were spotted doing the rounds in the interior of the area where the incident took place, once at 11 pm on April 23 and again at 1 am.
“Since a marriage reception was on in our area and it went on till late, nobody paid serious heed to those boys”, the resident informed on account of anonymity.
Confirming the above incident and speaking to TNT- The Northeast Today, SP city Spill Thamar informed that details about the incident was received at 5am in the morning and the preliminary investigation has been completed while adding, “We are trying to ascertain whether this is the handiwork of miscreants or is it a targeted attempt by any group”.
It may be recalled that similar instances have been occurring in and around Shillong whereby a petrol bomb was hurled at the residence of the editor of The Shillong Times Patricia Mukhim last week by two unknown miscreants, who according to witnesses came on a bike, hurled the petrol bomb and escaped. This case is also under investigation.
A similar incident also took place recently at Mawprem area.
