VK singh condemns attack in Northeast

New Delhi: Union Minister Gen (retired) V K Singh condemned the violent attacks in the Northeast saying it was abnormal in a society known for its matriarchal nature.

On Tuesday, a 35-year-old Garo woman was shot at point blank range when she had resisted an alleged molestation and rape attempt in South Garo Hills district of Meghalaya by suspected GNLA militants, sparking outrage in the state.

Singh also condemned the fatal attack on the Superintendent of Police and another policeman in an encounter with militants of Karbi Peoples’ Liberation Tigers (KPLT) in Karbi Anglong district of Central Assam.

In his tweet earlier, Singh had condemned the incident, saying, “Incident in Meghalaya is deplorable. Could never imagine an incident like this in a state where women are respected more than anywhere else.”
