One Clever Sangma, who is suspected of seriously assaulting another man, has been arrested by Tura police.
Clever Sangma allegedly barged into the accommodation of Thomson N Sangma just after midnight on October 26 and assaulted the latter, leaving the victim with deep cuts to his face. Thomson Sangma then received treatment at Tura Civil Hospital.
“He attempted to murder me by attacking me with sharp weapons without any provocation. In return I did not fight him. He also snatched away my phone containing two SIM cards,” said Thomson while seeking action against his attacker.
Meanwhile, in another assault case, the Vice-Chairman of the Meghalaya Forest Development Corporation (MFDC), Enamul Hoque, filed a police complaint against one Akkas Ali in Rajabala, under Phulbari Police Station, in West Garo Hills after the latter allegedly attempted to assault him with intent to cause grievous harm. A counter FIR has also been filed by Ali against Hoque.
