Conrad K. Sangma, the chief minister of Meghalaya, petitioned the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Friday regarding the deaths caused by Assam police shooting at the interstate border, describing it as a "obvious violation of human rights."
Sangma and deputy chief minister Prestone Tynsong met with the NHRC's other members in New Delhi, according to a statement from the Chief Minister's Office (CMO).

He said, "Informed the members and the Hon'ble Chairperson (NHRC) that the Mukroh incident was a flagrant violation of human rights." He said, "Sought their backing for essential action on their end."

In order to prevent such tragedies from happening, Sangma emphasised the importance of properly sensitising forces stationed in critical regions.

Following the interception of a vehicle carrying illegally cut timber by Assam forest authorities, six people—including an Assam forest guard—were killed in gunfire along the international boundary on Tuesday.
