Ex-KSU leader kin issue appeal

Shillong, Feb. 21: Family members of former Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) vice-president Frederick Kharmawphlang today appealed to him to come back after reports suggested that he had joined the proscribed Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC).

“We, the parents, sisters, and relatives of Fredrick Kharmawphlang are in deep shock to read in the newspapers that our son and brother suddenly left the KSU to join the HNLC,” a statement from Kharmawphlang’s father S.S. Lyngdoh said.

Kharmawphlang had reportedly tendered his resignation to KSU president Daniel Khyriem, wherein he mentioned that he would join the HNLC. The proscribed group had said it welcomed the stand taken by Kharmawphlang and 13 others who joined the outfit.

“We are in great pain because of his decision. We cannot express the deep sorrow and sadness that we are feeling. We pray that God will help change your mind. Please come back home,” Lyngdoh further said in the statement.

Yesterday, East Khasi Hills superintendent of police M. Kharkrang said Kharmawphlang had reportedly gone in his personal capacity. However, he ruled out any nexus between the KSU and the HNLC.
