SHILLONG, Feb 22 � Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma has appealed to five NGOs to call off their night road blockade in Jaintia Hills district.

The five NGOs � Jaintia Students� Movement, Ri Jaintia Youth Federation, Meghalaya People�s United Front, Hynniewtrep Achik National Movement and Hynniewtrep National Youth Front � have called the blockade in protest against the delay in making the Mookhep firing incident public by the Government.

Sangma in his appeal said the Government is examining the report before making it public, but in the meantime instructions were given to officers to expedite the examination of the report.

The NGOS had given a deadline to the Government to make the report public before announcing the night road blockade in Jaintia Hills from February 25. In September last year, security forces opened fire on protesters in Mookhep, Jaintia Hills, killing two persons and injuring five others.

The security forces had opened fire on the protesters for blocking vehicles on the National Highway while agitating against the ban on coal mining by the National Green Tribunal.
