Shillong: Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul
Sangma on Thursday said the government-appointed probe team did not
find any proof of mass grave relating to alleged secret
killings by militant group Achik National Volunteer Council
(ANVC).

Making public the report of the enquiry team, headed by
Commissioner of Garo Hills Division P W Ingty, he told
reporters that the state government had formed the team when
reports of secret killings appeared in the local media in
August.

The allegation was levelled by another militant group
Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA) leading to several bandhs
and disruption of normal life in the state.

Sangma said that investigations were carried out at the
ANVC liaison office at Tura and ANVC camp at Samanda with
forensic experts and video coverage, but nothing was found.
