Shillong, Aug 4 (PTI): A Meghalaya police constable, Lusen A Sangma, who shot dead his senior colleague earlier this week at a police battalion camp in West Jaintia Hills district, has surrendered in North Garo Hills district.
“The wanted constable surrendered at Kharkutta PS in North Garo Hills. He was arrested and brought to where he committed the crime,” West Jaintia Hills district SP R Muthu said. Lusen Sangma was in a drunken state when he stormed into the top-floor room of the havildar and fired about six rounds from his weapon. The havildar later succumbed to his injuries. Lusen escaped the camp by firing another 15 rounds in the air. The SP said the police was investigating what prompted the constable to shoot dead his colleague.
