Garo National Liberation Army’s Sohan D Shira was active in Meghalaya’s Garo Hills

Guwahati:  Meghalaya’s most wanted terrorist Sohan D Shira has been shot dead in an encounter with security forces today, police said. The self-proclaimed commander-in-chief of the Garo National Liberation Army or GNLA, active in the Garo Hills where election is due on February 27, was involved in several attacks on security forces and civilians as well.

The security forces have been intensifying anti-terrorism operations in the Garo Hills, 320 kilometres from state capital Shillong, after the killing of Nationalist Congress Party candidate Jonathone Sangma on Sunday last.

Mr Sangma, his personal security officer and two party workers were killed in an IED explosion at East Garo Hills when their convoy was returning from a campaign.

The attack was seen as an attempt by the terrorist group to discourage people from participating in the Meghalaya assembly election in the Garo Hills, near the border with Bangladesh.
