Meghalaya chief minister Conrad Sangma’s private house was attacked with petrol bombs by miscreants on August 15 after district authorities clamped curfew and suspension of mobile internet facility.

No one was injured in the bomb attacked, a police official said.

Police said that the incident occurred at around at 10:15 pm when miscreants hurled two petrol bombs at the private residence of the chief minister in Upper Shillong.

Police said a manhunt has been launched to nab the attackers and a criminal case has been registered.

Curfew was clamped in Shillong and mobile internet services temporarily suspended in the wake of vandalism, arson and snatching away of weapons from the police personnel on August 15 in protest against the killing of a surrendered former Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC) militant, Cheristarfield Thangkhiew, who was killed in a police raid on August 13.
