Jonathone N. Sangma was an aspirant for getting elected as a member of the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly. The irony was however, that during the campaign, Jonathone lost his life, killed in an explosion of an improvised explosive device, the sound which shook the small village of Sawilgre, across the Simsang River. A pall of gloom fell upon the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and also specially the family of the slain leader, his wife Krinilla, a mother of three children.
