Urgent! shillong political unrest now

We have already booked our hotels in Shillong from 15 June 2018 - 21 June 2018. Please give us honest opinion on the situation. Is it safe to travel now?

Certain areas of Shillong are under curfew as of today, curfew imposed in some areas between dusk and dawn. But in Cherrapunjee and Mawlynnong are free from any tension.

Curfew in Main dispute area has been relaxed from 6pm to 7am. And other parts of the city from 9pm to 5am, with effect from 10th June 2018.

Situation has calmed down relatively as of now.

Yes, it is unrest. I came back last Sunday and there was curfew inside main city. Had the fear of disturbance while visiting cherrapunji. We actually plan any trip to make happy ourselves. What is this...this place is out of curfew that place is having curfew. Exit of the city is through disturbance place. Let situation become normal completely then try to visit. Curfew spoilt my trip which I had planned three months back.
