Shillong: Crowborough Hotel to open in September after 30 years of construction
Meghalaya CM Conrad Sangma

Shillong: As screenshots of threats by ‘Lawei Ba Phyrnai’, a group which claims to be a new terror outfit, to Chief Minister Conrad Sangma have started circulating, the Meghalaya CM on Tuesday said they are not taking things lightly and are looking into the email.

Sangma said a meeting was held Tuesday with the Special DGP to take stock of the situation and try to crack the case. “For us as the government and as police and home department, we take every situation seriously. Anything related to law and order, even an email that comes in for us, it’s a serious matter,” said the chief minister.

“Lawei Ba Phyrnai”, which has identified itself as a “terror outfit” formed by 37 well-qualified and talented jobless youth, has threatened that “bombs will go off every single week starting 1st May 2022″.

The chief minister has assured the citizens that they are doing everything that is possible but refused to share details about his meeting with the Special DG.

“We are working very seriously on this entire situation not just from technology point of view but also from the point of view of law and order. Steps are being taken, but having said that, we still have to see the validity of the seriousness of this threat,” added Sangma.

The chief minister said they are conducting background checks and ensuring that every aspect is looked into and will leave no stone unturned. But he added that such things happen in other states also where there have been similar situations but nothing came from it eventually.

“For us, as I said, it could be that but there’s no question of the state government taking it lightly. So, we are on the job and the department is working very hard and working overtime to crack this particular case,” reiterated the chief minister.

It maybe mentioned that an email was sent to the chief minister’s office which had threatened to execute a series of bomb attacks targeting educational institutions as a mark of protest against the rising unemployment problem in the state.
