Assam lifts travel restriction to Meghalaya
As Shillong limps back to normalcy, Assam lifted its travel advisory to Meghalaya.The popular tourists’ destination had been on the boil for three days after the incident of firing on the interstate border left six persons, including five Meghalaya villagers, dead.
During the protests in Shillong, the miscreants had torched an Assam-registered SUV, partially damaged some others by pelting stones and attacked the police, including women personnel. An inspector of Customs and Central Excise, who was in the hill station for training, was also attacked.
After observing that Shillong did not witness any untoward incident since November 25, the Assam police allowed all modes of vehicles to travel to Shillong and other areas of Meghalaya much to the relief of people stranded in both states.
Police escorts were provided wherever it was needed. There was no restriction on the movement of vehicles in Meghalaya. (Source Indian Express)
