SHILLONG, June 11 - Curfew timing in the Meghalaya State Capital Shillong and areas under Lumdiengjri Police Station would remain unchanged, but there is a possibility of restoring Internet connection in the next 24 hours, officials here said today.

The State police held a review meeting to assess the current law and order situation and based on the assessment, Deputy Commissioner East Khasi Hills, PS Dkhar has decided to keep the curfew timings unchanged.

There are two curfew timing in the State Capital � one for the areas falling under Lumdiengjri Police Station and the other for the rest of the city. Curfew is imposed from 8 pm to 5 am in the city, but in areas falling under Lumdiengjri PS curfew is imposed from 6 pm to 7am.

�There is nothing wrong with the present law and order situation in the State capital, but as a matter of precaution we are still imposing night curfew. We will wait and watch for sometime before lifting the curfew,� Dkhar said.

With regards to restoration of Internet connection, Dkhar said that a decision to lift the suspension would be taken within the next 24 hours. Mobile Internet service has been suspended ever since the violence broke out. The administration has, however, restored mobile SMS services recently.

The DC said that the administration is closely monitoring the situation and troop deployment has not been reduced. The State police is being assisted by Central paramilitary forces.

�We want to be careful so that the situation doesn�t spiral out of hand once again,� Dkhar said.
