Meghalaya: Missing person's body recovered in Nongstoin



The body of Disharbor Lyngdoh Nonglait (36) of Sohiong, East Khasi Hills district who was reported missing since December 18, was recovered by police and relatives at Porlamkohlait under Pyndenglawar in Nongstoin on Sunday.

A source informed that on December 18, Disharbor and his friends went to Nongkhnum for a picnic, and while returning, his vehicle stopped, and he fell into a deep gorge.

His friends, who were unaware of what had happened, left him there.

Police suspect that Nonglait death was the result of hypothermia - a significant and potentially dangerous drop in body temperature commonly caused due to prolonged exposure to cold.

Police later handed over Nonglait's body to his relatives.

However, an investigation is ongoing.
