Williamnagar, 21 Jan: A former militant leader of the GNLA and now Congress candidate from Songsak constituency, Champion R Sangma, has spread false narratives against this media house for breaking the story on the Williamnagar accident involving former minister Deborah Marak’s son that resulted in the death of a scooterist.
Taking to social media with an intention to show loyalty to the Congress and score some plus points for himself, Champion R Sangma openly wrote that he had rushed to the police station and later to Williamnagar congress candidate Deborah Marak’s home and found that there is no accident involving Deborah Marak’s son and vehicle. He even went to the extent to blatantly lie that no arrest took place.
HUB News has obtained a police report and clarified from authorities that the accident involving the former minister’s son did take place. The accused surrendered to police one day later and was granted bail since it is a bailable offence.
It is pertinent to point out that the former militant and Congress candidate from Songsak has a history of concocting stories to sooth his agenda and is termed by many to be more of a social media activist than a politician.
