Investigation against Meghalaya DGP’s using fake number plate to continue even after his retirement: says CM

Must read

Shillong, May 15: Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma said investigation into the complaint against the incumbent Director General of Police (DGP) Lajja Ram Bishnoi for allegedly using a fake number plate will continue even after his retirement.

“FIR has been lodged and an FIR has been registered, so the case will continue, the investigation will continue. The retirement does not affect that,” Sangma told reporters.

“As I said for us, it’s very simple that when a complaint comes every FIR is a proper case and as per the law, whatever needs to be done and as per the rules, what has to be done, will be followed, irrespective of who the person is,” he said.

On May 9, former Assistant Inspector General (AIG) of Meghalaya Police GK Iangrai filed an FIR against DGP for allegedly misuse and tampering of registration number plate of his vehicle.


The complaint filed with Sadar Police Station, also came close to the heel of Bishnoi’s retirement on May 19.

Stating that the law will take its own course, the chief minister said, “We have been very clear from day one with every situation of law that we have come across, that law is the same for all and therefore, the law will take its course.”

“Whatever the complaints have come in, the procedure has been followed, FIR has been registered and an investigation is on,” he added.

The DGP had filed a petition seeking quashing of the FIR and claimed that FIR was nothing but vengeance and grudge against him since action was taken against Iangrai during his tenure,

Asked whether such issue is a healthy trend within the police department, the CM, however said, “No, obviously, number one point, I’m not saying that it is or it is not, I don’t know about that, I don’t want to comment about the fact that what the DG has said, it has personal level. I don’t want to comment on that at all.”
