Meghalaya Govt awaits magisterial inquiry report into Tura violence

 Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Wednesday said the government is waiting for the report of the magisterial inquiry into the mob attack on the CMO, Tura on July 24.
Speaking to reporters, Sangma said that a magisterial inquiry has been set up to probe into the incident of mob attack.
Asked if the government is open to independent probe, the CM said, “So first we will wait for that (magisterial inquiry) to be done. If necessary then the decision can be made. But as of now the magisterial inquiry is going on.”
He said that the magisterial inquiry will not take too long to submit its findings.
Over 47 persons have been arrested for their alleged involvement in the mob attack incident.
On the West Garo Hills DC’s statement that there was no conspiracy to murder CM, Sangma said, “…… far as I know the DC has given a clarification later on and in that clarification he has mentioned that he was not fully quoted in terms of what he actually meant…I think it would be good if you speak to him.”
He further assured that whatever actions are taken are based on evidence.
“Having said that from day one I have been maintaining that whatever actions and whatever conclusions have to be concluded, they will all be based on the facts that are found and it will be totally on the basis of evidence,” the CM added.
When asked, Sangma said, “…whatever happened out there was unprecedented in one sense and therefore, the police are going into different aspects and ensuring that law and order has to be maintained.”
“At the end of the day if law and order is not there, then again police will be blamed for why police are not acting, why police not taking any decisions and actions, so it all comes down to blaming the police force – for doing also and for not doing also. So it is not very simple job and they to take certain decisions and therefore, the more independence that is being given to them the least interference and ensuring that law and order is kept as top priority  I think they have to decide on the basis of that and therefore I have no commence on what police are acting on as I said for them it is important to maintain law and order,” he added.
