Shillong: Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul
Sangma on Monday said the state government would urge Centre to
institute a CBI inquiry into the clash and police firing at
Langpih, the disputed area in Assam-Meghalaya border.

"There was a consensus on the issue of a time-bound
CBI enquiry into the incident," he said in a press conference
after meeting with political parties and NGOs.

Four persons were killed and several others injured
when police opened fire after a group of people attacked
another community with firearms, stones, bricks and sticks at
the village bordering Meghalaya`s West Khasi Hills district
and Assam`s Kamrup district on May 14.

Sangma said he would hold discussion with his Assam
counterpart Tarun Gogoi after his return from abroad to solve
the long-pending border issue between the states.

Sangma along with Deputy Chief Minister Don Kupar Roy
and Bindo M Lanong`s representative, cabinet colleagues and
representatives of political parties would visit Langpih
tomorrow.

Meghalaya government also decided to pay Rs 3 Lakh
each to the next of kin of those killed in the firing and the
medical expenditures.
