Shillong Times reported that All India Mahila Congress (AIMC) president Sushmita Dev has demanded a judicial probe into the issue of illegal coal mining in Meghalaya. The statement from the AIMC chief comes days after CSWO president Agnes Kharshiing and her colleague Amita Sangma were brutally attacked in a village in East Jaintia Hills. Talking to The Shillong Times over the phone, Dev maintained that the issue of illegal coal mining in Meghalaya should be dealt with once and for all. Terming the attack on Kharshiing as unfortunate, the Silchar MP added that illegal movement of coal is against the interest of the people of the state.

Dev said that “I find it quite shocking that you (state government) know that she is fighting against the issue of illegal mining and she was brutally attacked but you could not stop it.” Raising questions on the clandestine manner in which natural resources were being illegally moved out of the state, Dev said such illegal movement of natural resources usually happens with police involvement.
