Shillong, Nov 8 (UNI) The Khun Hynniewtrep National Awakening Movement (KHNAM) and two prominent social organisations -- have denied maintaining 'links' with the Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNPC) in Meghalaya.
The denial of Khasi Student's Union (KSU) and Federation of Khasi and Jaintia and Garo People (FKJGP) came after the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council, Chief Executive Member H S Shylla accused his rival political party KHNAM, an ally of the Congress-led government and KSU and FKJGP of having nexus with the outlawed HNLC.
Terming the allegation of its nexus with HNLC as an old 'propaganda' and 'baseless', KSU president Samuel B Jyrwa told UNI here today that similar allegations had been made against the student's body in the past.
Defending the accusations, the KSU Chief recalled the report of Justice Phukan Commission, which denied any 'link' between the KSU and the tribal Khasi militant outfit.
Justice Phukan was probing into the killing of two KSU activists with HNLC ultra in a police 'encounter'.
Meanwhile, the state police have initiated its investigation into the linkage between the banned militant outfit and KSU.
'We are probing the linkages and investigations are on to ascertain if there is any link between the HNLC and KSU,' state Director General of Police B K Dey Sawian had said.
Mr Sawian said the state police possessed also enough evidences, which had pointed to various linkages of the HNLC cadres with the KSU. 'These connections will be brought to the notice of the state government and Centre and will be placed on record for future action,' Mr Sawian informed.
