A Black Scorpio bearing registration number AS 01 DK 5958 was torched by unknown miscreants near Arya Vidyalaya School, Jhalupara, Shillong GS Road.
The incident occurred at around 7:20pm near Mahavir Park in Lad Mawbah.
The black Scorpio, carrying three passengers coming from West Khasi Hills, was on its way to Guwahati when the incident took place.

The Assam Police has restricted the movement of vehicles bearing Assam’s registration number to Meghalaya following Tuesday morning’s firing incident.
Meghalaya has suspended mobile internet services in seven districts of the state for 48 hours after six persons including one Assam forest official were killed in firing in Mukroh in West Jaintia Hills on the border between the two states.
State police are monitoring the law and order scenario in the capital Shillong.
